I'm progressively having a problem that no one knows how to solve. From time to time, if I drag a video file directly to a media player (such as real player or Windows media player) or if I have trouble opening a video file, I end up losing all the contents in my windows. For example, if I go to My Computer or My Program Files, the box will be empty, except for a faint little box in the upper left-hand corner. This also tends to affect the desktop--eg., the Trash icon will have disappeared. To restore back to normal, I have to restart my computer. I've run virus and spyware scans in Safe mode and have come up clean. Does anyone know what this is all about?
