    Problem opening the Shortcut icons from the desktop after 5 minutes in Windows 7

    After I boot the Windows 7 OS everything works fine for sometime and after 5 minutes or so I am not able to access the shortcut icons which are present in the desktop. I tried changing the mouse too but itís the same problem. Is anyone faced the same issue? How to fix it?

    Hello friend ,

    windows-7-vs-windows-816.jpg

    This problem basically occurs when you had installed a corrupted window .

    OR

    Some files of your window is gone crashed during installation ,

    You have to re-install your window with a full version of windows and also you have to scan your computer for the virus.

    GOOD LUCK....!!!!

    First click on start and type gpedit.msc and press enter. come to user configuration> administrative templates>desktop and then on the right side double click Hide and disable all items on desktop and set it to disable.*
    Then also disable Don't save settings on exit. restart to see if the problem persist. If it still do the same then there is a good chance that there is some kind of schedule, or start up program that do it. click start and type msconfig and press enter and under startup tab look for any suspicious startup program with unusual name or program with a path that you didn't install and moreover there should not be any start up program from the path of windows\system32 or windows except your drivers of devices. disable all suspected startups and also end process them before applying disable from taskmanager(Ctrl + Alt + Del) if they are already running under process, so that they cannot create start up again even when you disable. Then try to restart and see if you problem resolves.*

    1)type command prompt in search and and now right click on command prompt and click on run as administrator
