For some reason I can't see any of the shortcuts on the desktop. I think
they are there because when I go into the display area in the control panel
and go into Customize desptop the desktop cleanup wizard lists the shortcuts
that I thought were on the desktop that I can't see. HELP!!!! This is
annoying. WHy isn't anyting showing on the desktop?

Right-click on the Desktop and click "Arrange Icons By." If "Show
Desktop Icons" isn't checked, click on it to check it.
