i just upgraded from vista to 7. everything went well, but when i attempted to put an icon the desktop it would show up. i searched my computer, and found a file called "vista desktop." i opened it and it had all of the icon that i had one my vista desktop. i attempted to copy them onto the desktop, but it didn't work. the computer said that the icon was already on the desktop, so i couldn't copy it. nothing will go on the desktop. the computer is in good contition. i think that problem might have something to do with the desktop items being invisible or something stupid like. any help is greatfuly exepted.
