Icons don't show on Desktop for User Profile

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.file_system (More info?)

We have one user who's profile doesn't show any icons on
desktop. You can logoff of profile but you can't see any
icons or startup bar. Deleted profile and created it
again but we still get the same problem. When we logon as
Admin all icons show up.

    Check that explorer.exe is the default shell to start. Look at the Reg_Sz
    string value of;
    "Shell"="Explorer.exe"
    found at
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    Else these may help you.
