    Could be logging as a different user. Each local user's desktop will probably be different.

    Is this an XP box and was XP installed as an upgrade to ME or 98?

    I had this problem with several machines that I upgraded from Win98 to XP. After conversations with Microsoft, their final suggestion was to flat the box and install fresh. Once I did that the disappearing icons syndrome went away.
