Question about Apple Power Mac G5 Desktop
One of 2 things...
One, the app used to open the files is missing or not found.
Two, the extension was removed from the file.
Try holding the Option Key while dragging the file on top the application's icon. This will force it to open.

Yes, that is a major factor. Because the files arent actually kept on the desktop, so when you boot it, the machine has to" remember" where that content is actually stored. You should also defrag the hard drive with DISK UTILTIY.
MAIN DRIVE/APPLICATIONS/UTILITIES/DISK UTILITY
You can also check the space left on the drive. It should state at the bottom of the window when that volume is selected. Or you can also click on it once and hit the apple and "I" key..
APPLE+ I also know as "get info" from the top file menu. If you do a considerable amount of downloading, or if you have a massive itunes folder and you are saving that to your internal drive and not an external, you operating system has to weed through all that information. If youre getting spinning beach balll as well, I'd recommend install more RAM modules.
Hope this helps, keep me posted.

First you need to run some maintenance (which in itself may solve it) to rule out software issues, so start here...
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
Mac OS X: How to start up in single-user or verbose mode
If that doesn't help, try booting into Safe Mode and see what happens, if it comes up hopefully another restart may solve, if not, you can at least use this as a starting point to try and resolve. Safe Mode will allow you to get around, surf, etc...
What is Safe Boot, Safe Mode?
Mac OS X: Starting up in Safe Mode
If Safe Mode comes up alright, I would install AppleJack, excellent troubleshooting article can be found here... Troubleshooting Tools: AppleJack
Another excellent free tool for performing maintenance is Onyx (be sure to download the right version for your system). Install the package, then run it, it will check your drive and the structure, after this, click on the automation tab and check on everything for Maintenance, Clear Cache, Cleaning, and check on Reset -> LaunchServices database and Mail's Envelope Index. When it completes, restart. Repeat any time something seems flaky, if not try to run at least once a month.
