After they work for awhile, the icons on my desk top won't open. I can open items by going to start or by rebooting my computer. Any way to correct this problme? Thanks

what happens when you click on them?
whats 'for awhile'? Do they work for X amount of time then stop, or have they stopped working since you've had Windows 7 for X amount of time.

I would try doing a system restore to an earlier point where they all worked.
Try deleting the shortcuts, and then resending them to the desktop when you right click on the icons on the Start Menu
