At times after logon to the network my
desktop icons are missing despite using my
local profile under WIN NT4.0

Any suggestions ?

Sounds like the user.dat file located in your profile folder is corrupt. I would try copying an existing user.dat file from another profile folder/NT machine after renaming the other to .old. You will only be able to do this if you are logged on under a different username (SID) from the one you normally use. Once you have a "new" user.dat, you will be able recreate your desktop items etc. (you can copy the shortcuts back to your desktop from your \winnt\profiles\%username%\desktop folder, if you like)
