    Unable to Acess Desktop Icons

    i am un able to acess any files or programs located on the desk top or
    select or highlight anything on the desktop. the files can be opened by using
    other methods. is there a setting on the vista operating system that could
    cause this problem?

    It sounds like a problem with your profile. I would create a new ID and test
    that. You can copy the old profile over if that fixes it.
