It sounds like your profile might be corrupted but it doesn't make sense that rebooting will sometimes fix your problem. The next time your icons don't show up, right click on the desktop and select "Refresh" to see if they come up then.

boot to safe-mode - goto start then run and type msconfig -

Within Msconfig you should see a startup tab. Look in there and remove or uncheck all that appear to be using ntvdm.exe

Also check in start, programs, startup, remove anything there as well.

Let me know if that does not help.
