Title. It has happened many times already. Several game desktop icons would just randomly disappear from my desktop. What causes this?

Edit: Nevermind. Seems to be a Windows 7 issue with broken icons or something of that nature. There is no fix except to turn off System Maintenance which isn't recommended. Oh well. I already made a copy of all the desktop icons for every time the system gets rid of icons randomly.

If anyone has a real fix, I would really appreciate the help.
