1)Repeatedly tap F8 during the early boot phase to boot into Safe Mode. One of the options will be:

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

Select this with your keyboard arrows, hit Enter. Upon reboot, does this fix the glitch?

2) Run chkdsk.exe on your hard drive to repair any sector errors. Type this in the Run menu exactly as you see here:

chkdsk.exe C: /f

chkdsk will scour the hard drive for errors, and will fix any errors it finds upon rebooting.

3) Check your Display settings. This may have been reset:

Control Panel > Display > Themes

Choose a theme that you prefer. Does this restore the desktop icons and wallpaper?

Please post back in this thread if you have not resolved this glitch. If you are successful, let us know what worked for you.
