Desktop refeshing very SLOWLY

When i refresh the desktop , the icons dont come up in a fraction of a second , like they always used to .

They come up slowly like in 2 seconds , one by one .

I am facing this since yest , and this is very annoying :(

I have 2 GB ram out of which 1.4 GB is free generally and nothing else has slowed down in the computer .

Things i have tried (after searching the net for similar problems)

1) All types of scans for viruses , malware , spyware (nothing found)
2) Increasing the icon catch memory in regedit.exe
3) removing unwanted softwares

But NOTHING is helping me :(

Please help

    Recently, did you install any software?. Try restore options. I had this problem sometime back. Restore option helped me, but I dont remember what was the exact reason for this....
    If nothing else helps, just perform windows repair option.
