Question Desktop icons slow to load
I hope someone can help me.
The past couple of weeks my desktop icons have been very slow to load. When I turn on my computer the desktop comes up as usual, and the 'wallpaper' I use is there (a color with a small photo in the center) but the icons take a few minutes to appear, once they do then my task bar also loads and everything is normal...

why are my desktop icons taking so long to show up? It was suugested I make my icon cache larger...but I have no isea how to do that. I was also told a safe mode boot up might help...but I have never started in safe mode, and not sure about trying it.

I am certain I have no nasty things lurking, and I de frag ect often.

There must be an easy fix to slow loading desktop icons...can someone help me?
Thank you.
