I know this may sound strange (or maybe not) but I've never experienced this before. I come to the PC in the morning only to find it shut off and when restarted the desktop icons have been rearranged as if they have been deleted. I believe they are all there but why this has happened is a mystery to me. If I didn't live alone I'd swear someone here has shut off my PC and then scrambled up the icons for fun. This has happened twice now. The PC is an HP that I just bought in June and I have Nortons installed on it and I have ran Ad-aware & Spybot and found nothing alarming. Is there any reason why this is happenning and is there a threat of a virus as the cause? Here are the snapshots: This is the desktop with the gaping holes: http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m249/mossfan18/DesktopMissingIcons.jpg This one shows an X where the icon used to be : http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m249/mossfan18/xformissingicon.jpg Thanks guys!
