    Desktop icon issues with Samsung machine with Windows OS

    The desktop icons on my Samsung machine with Windows OS are unresponsive since I did an antivirus installation. I tried rebooting the system but the problem is still the same. How to activate the desktop icons now?

    hi there,

    you can uninstall the software and may use another antivirus. If this does not solve your problem, you can restore your system to an earlier time.

    procedure to restore system :

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

    hope you find it favorable.

    My friend,
    Check that some one has not play trick on you.It may possible that some one has taken print screen of your desktop and placed it as your wall paper.And hid your desktop icons.
    Try to create to new link on your desktop and check it if it works fine,then your system is fine.
    Right click on your desktop,then click show desktop icons.

    All the best.

    i have few doubts about your problem, unresponsive means whether you are not able to open it or not able to select with mouse.

    what happens when you right click on the icon on your desktop. its okay... if you have this problem now try to restore your system to earlier state.
    procedure to restore your settings.

    press win+r keys
    type "rstrui.exe"

    where you will find recommended restore date.
    click on the date when your system had worked properly.
    clik ok

    after restoring Restart your system.

    happy to assist you
