    Have you tried a soft reset (power off / on).

    sometimes that'll fix those types of problems.

    This should be interesting. What does deleting pics have to do with programs disappearing?

    You can't delete those. That one named circle view or something is important even if you dont use it.

    The programs didnt disappear. the background did. that makes it so you can't see the short cuts.

    WOW...would never have guessed that. I bow to far superior knowledge.

    I was going on the soft reset thing because I've seen situations, where like the installed programs listing disappears after a program delete, until a soft reset.

    Bowing out of this one to let the masters work.

    They may be hidden in the windows file. You would have to sync it and unhide all files and look through the windows folder.
    Or someone may be able to post them here.
