    Only certain icons are disappearing. I put them back on and they go away again. Anyone know why that would be? thanks

    Hi jmille92,

    That new feature is ‘System Maintainence Troubleshooter’. You could try to turning it off.

    System Maintainence Troubleshooter- Turn On or Off

    Those Desktop icons will not show on your desktop screen unless you have them turned on. Even when turned off, they will always show in the common Desktop folder and it never present in your C: Users\(user-name)\Desktop folder

    Add & Remove Desktop Icons

    Hope this helps...
