    Default Icons not showing up on desktop?!

    I have a Macbook Pro 15" 2.4 running 10.5

    Tried to wake from sleep earlier and just got the spinning beach ball... no response to anything, so had to do a forced shutdown.

    After restarting, no icons appear on my desktop!

    The files are actually there (I can open a finder window and navigate to the files on the desktop that way) but nothing is showing up on the actual desktop... not even the HD icon.

    Have tried to switch to a different user account, and that is fine.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Thanks

    No idea. Get rid of com.apple.desktop.plist, and relaunch Finder?
