This is the FIX!!!

open notepad and input the following text...

[Shell]
Command=2
IconFile=explorer.exe,3
[Taskbar]
Command=ToggleDesktop

Save the new file as Show Desktop.scf then drag and drop the icon on the Quick Launch bar or whatever location you want the shortcut to appear.

This fixes the problem... Then you need to save the file someplace where you can find it and not delete it so easy...
