Desktop and taskbar items disappear.

By sleyba ·
I am running a network with NT4 SP6. This time while closing out the internet options, it stopped responding. The items on the desktop and task bar disappeared. I can open the task monitor and start or open an item from there but then the box will not close. The network appears to be running ok, I have about 40 users with no complaints. The control-alt-delete allows me to sign off or back on but until I can reboot the icons are still missing. This is the second time this has happened to me in the last couple of months. When I reboot the server it appears to solve the problem. Is there an underlying problem that is causing this or does anyone know why this happens. All help is appreciated.

Update your video driver/ switch to a different video card (or monitor)
sounds like one of the two are not on the HAL
make sure you have a good monitor that is on the HAL and a good card that is also on the HAL
if you are using a RADIUS montor, iam sorry

Thanks for the input-although it didn't help in this instance. Card and monitor both are on the list.
