    Desktop Problems (But Fixes After Reboot!)

    Hi all,

    I'm new to this forum so apologies if this doesn't make sense!!

    I've recently upgraded my Windows 10 to the new 1511 version and after a while I've noticed a few issues with my desktop in that all the icons disappear when it boots up and also my Dropbox doesn't connect either. I go into the actual Desktop folder and notice that all of my icons have disappeared from there as well. When I load Task Manager the Local Service Host (Network Restricted) is running quite high and there are two instances of this running. I right-clicked and checked that icons are set to show which they are and that the service message hasn't put it in tablet mode which it hasn't.

    However, if I reboot (or in most cases having to force it down as the restart takes forever to load!!) then all of my Desktop icons come back, my Dropbox connects fine and it behaves like it's meant to.

    This has been happening for a few days now and every time I load it for the first time that day, the icons disappear and I have problems but every time I restart or force close it's absolutely fine!

    Any ideas on what could be causing this and what I can do to stop rebooting my machine every time?

    My system spec is as follows:

    System Manufacturer/Model Number: Samsung 15.6" NP350V5C Series 3 Essential Notebook
    OS: Windows 10 v1511
    CPU: Intel Core i5-3210M @ 2.5 GHz
    Memory: 6GB RAM 670GB HDD
    Graphics Card(s): Intel HD Graphics 4000

    Many thanks,

      My Computer

    Do you have fast startup enabled? You may have to disable fast startup for this issue.

    Right click on start
    Click power options
    Click, choose what the power button does
    Click on, choose options currently offline
    Uncheck fast startup.

    See if that works.

    Although there are a lot of bugs with the new 1511 version of Windows 10.
