This is generally an error from the registry, namely the context menu handlers (which is a shell extension handler that adds commands to context menus) If you can isolate when it started to occur and then maybe you can link it to a program you installed.

Are you having any having any other problems with your system emptying the bin, media apps??

I can suggest a progam that you can download that will allow you to see what extensions are in use and hopefully from this you will see if there are any left over commands from bad unistalls

Hot to retrieve my desk top icons


OK what OS are you using..I am assuming Xp or Vista...I am assuming XP

These are desktop icons not system tray icons right...

This is for XP only if they are desktop icons...

To resolve this behavior, turn on the Show Desktop Icons feature:
  1. Right-click the desktop.
  2. Point to Arrange Icons By.
  3. Click Show Desktop Icons.
  4. If that didn't work go here:
