    How often does this happen? Is it a continual problem or sporadic?

    Try restarting explorer.exe.

    Ctrl-Shift-Esc to launch Task Manager
    Go to Processes
    Find explorer.exe
    "End Process"
    Go to File -> Run -> explorer

    A quicker way may be to restart the computer.

    If it is happening often, you need to find out what software is on your system that may be effecting the system.
