I can see my desktop and icons just fine, and everything else on my computer works perfectly. But sometimes my desktop will freeze up and only restarting my computer seems to fix it. If I open up my desktop as a folder via the start menu, I can access everything fine there, I just can't do anything from my actual desktop. Also if I personalize my desktop via the Desktop folder, I can change the wallpaper on the actual desktop and it changes instantly.
So far this seems to only happen right after talking in MSN Messenger, but it doesn't happen every time I talk in MSN so I'm not entirely sure if it's related.
It's a pretty new computer so this shouldn't be happening. I also don't want to have to restart my computer every time this happens, it shouldn't be happening.
