If you have Photoshop 7 there is a .dll file you can rename to avoid interference with icons and thumbnails. Otherwise is there anything you have changed or added to the computer? What OS and do you have a lot of icons? With some older operating systems icons could be a problem if you had too many. You might try pruning them when they come back or putting them in folders on your desktop. I find that an easier way to find things on the desktop anyway. Right click on a blank space on the desktop and New>Folder. Type a name for the folder. Just drag the icons of a particular type into the folder. I have folders for graphics, Palm and utilities. Really cleans up the desktop.
