    The "This PC" icon disappeared, and I know how to fix it, by why did it?

    Spontaneously the "This PC" icon on my desktop (Windows 10), disappeared. I know how to fix it, and I did, but my question is why does that happen? I haven't done anything unusual lately. So I'm worried it's either the hard drive beginning to fail or a virus. What are some possible reasons...

    TEMP Desktop?

    I logged on to my computer this morning, but all my files were gone and a new user was added to the "C:/Users" directory called "TEMP". I logged off then logged back on, and everything was back to normal. How did this happen, and how can I prevent it in the future?

    My PC has 4.00 GB RAM installed and since I am using windows 10, I have noticed in the Performance tab of Task Manager, that the allocated Memory is not more than 3.0 GB out of 4.0 GB.

    Just today I noticed that the preview for images in my libraries (png, jpg, gif, etc files) is different from what it was before.

    Custom Icons Recycle Bin

    OK, I firmly believe that the Windows Recycle Bin icons are fuggly. So, I want to change them. I've done it in the past with XP. I've also done it on this machine (Windows 8.1). Someone elsewhere said that I'd have to build a .dll file. What? Not the way I've done it before (both XP and 8). I...
