If this is what you’re experiencing there are two reasons for this situation. Either, desktop icons have not loaded properly or your computer might have contracted a virus.

In the case of icons not loading properly, it’s recommended that you reach out to us here at savage. This could potentially vary based on which type of Microsoft you’re using.

However, in the case of viruses- things are a bit more complicated. Some viruses will actually go in and change the files that have been set as hidden, and also changed the setting of appropriate registry settings.
