I've found that this sometimes happens when your computer lags, just kill your explorer.exe and then restore it.

Or reboot.

Because this happened 4 months after PC built, I want to rule out software first.

Please follow the instructions from this post:

Make sure you download the one for Vista. It says

The batch files will give me information I can use to see if there is a problem.

They are instructions provided by the Microsoft Tech jcgriff2 so you're in good hands :grin:
