For some reason when booting up, my desktop became corrupted with all my
shortcut icons having disappeared from the Taskbar (to the right of
Start button), as well as some of the labels of icons on the desktop
itself missing, and non-functional . I restored the system state from a
backup and the desktop now looks normal with the icon names restored and
all working again, except the shortcut icons on the Taskbar are still
missing. Furthemore I can no longer place shortcut icons on the taskbar.
Is there a registry hack to get round this problem?
