    Is your "main page" a web page or your Windows desktop? If it is your Windows desktop select Start, Find, search for the file named "ShellIconCache", and delete it. Windows will recreate a new one automatically. The reason for deleting it is can sometimes get corrupted. If that does not fix the problem how much video memory do you have and how many colors are enabled? If you have very little memory try lower the number of colors.
