Can't open a desktop icon
What would cause a desktop icon not being able to open? All the other icons work fine.

Re: Can't open a desktop icon
If there are no files in the icon, then it wont open. Check for it. If still not opens, then run the Microsoft fixit tool from the link Fix broken desktop shortcuts and common system maintenance tasks and check for it.
