Wallpaper and network icons disappearing
Hi everyone, hope you can help. Starting yesterday, when I come into work and turn on my 24" iMac (running 10.7.5), my desktop wallpaper image has reverted to the Apple swirling galaxy picture, and the three network drives I keep on the desktop have vanished. It's not a crisis; I just go "command + K" and I can put them back in a few seconds, but it hadn't ever happened before yesterday. Any ideas?

Most likely Permissions problem, see if repairing permissions helps.
If settings in Finder or desktop are reset each time you login it is almost sure to be a permission problem.

Many thanks for the tip. I tried it yesterday, and it partially works. Now when I reboot the wallpaper stays, but the network drive icons on the desktop disappear. For some reason, I thought to put aliases of these, and when I restart they come back up. So, problem solved. Still not sure why it happened in the first place, but thanks again for the help.
