    Desktop Icons randomly disappearing?!?!?!?!

    I've never seen this before and am hoping someone out there has, and has a solution.

    On one of our admin machines, at random times some desktop icons disappear, some taskbar icons disappear, even the boxes around "ok" buttons disappears.

    I've run a full virus scan and haven't found anything.

    I thought I'd fixed it the other day - I ran sfc /scannow and the icons all returned.

    Two days later and the problem has come back again.

    Here is a screenshot of the desktop if its of any help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is the desktop redirected to a server?
