Specs: Windows XP
Some desktop icons dissappear and occassionally show back up. When this first occured I simply used the icon and the pic showed back up on it, then later the pic dissappeared, there is the Windows desktop icon replacement icon there as well as on a few others. Most are unaffected.

Derek's 'how to' should fix it. Another quick thing you can check is to go to START--SETTINGS--TASKBAR AND START MENU and make sure 'hide inactive icons' is not checked. I don't think that's the reason for your problem but that option should be turned off anyway.
