Default windows xp desktop went to ****

The icons all disappeared and the words stayed. how do i fix that? I know a reboot will fix that but i want to fix it for good.

Another problem: In my computer I don't have that screen on the left saying info about the hard drive and other stuff when you click on the hard drive.

productreviews2's Xanga Site

I have screen shots there if you don't know what i am talking about.

if this happens again..... right click the desktop, arrange icons, show desktop icons (if this fixes it ur done) but if it doesn't repeat it again, sort of as a refresh.... it should work... usually does for me with halo but see if it fixes it
