    I keep getting something strange going on.

    I open a folder and some icons for some files are gone, the name is there, the file/program still works but no icon. It just happened and I was about to do a re boot and before I did I opened a folder that had missing Icons, and they were back.

    I cannot explain it any better, also it is intermittent, and started about a week ago.

    Any ideas anybody ?

    Missing Icons

    My boss is having the same problem. On his home screen, he has the Facebook app... however, the blue "F" icon was not there. It was just a blank with the word Facebook floating at the bottom. Now, he could still hold down in the area and it would wiggle and let him move it to another page. Oddly enough, when he moved it to the second page, the icon appeared! Don't worry... problem is not solved. Then he flipped back to the original home screen and showed me that now his Yahoo Messenger icon was missing. Same deal all over again. Basically, no matter what, there is always ONE missing icon on his home screen. Help?!?!
