I had a PortableApps USB go bad the other day so I got an extra USB and put my backup from two weeks ago on there. Now I hit the PortableApps Start icon, the menu comes up like it should but the rest of my desktop icons disappears. It only happens on my PortableApps USB and none of the others.
It's screwing with Windows explorer.exe somehow. I ran the built-in repair tool on Windowsand it didn't find any errors.
Is the USB corrupt?
Is there something wrong explorer.exe?
Is there something wrong with my icon database?
I woke up yesterday, booted my machine as normal and all my desktop icons had moved to different places. I spent about 15 minutes re-arranging them back to where they used to be.
Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks.
