hi yas

while using windows XP pro, sometimes between switching, shutting down programs, and hitting the show desktop button the icons seem to reload them selfs back up and VERY slowly at doing it too. they load from the last icon back to the first(Z to A).
i cant understand why this is happening since everything else loads awesome. this is a very fruststraiting problem since it cause my whole computer to slow right down during it. like the icons cant take up much space on the hard drive and usally they should appear in an instant.
