Deleted items keep returning to desktop

I have Vista Home Premium with a recently purchased HP Desktop [AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 5600+ 3GB memory]. I often use the desktop to temporarily store files [Word, Excel & some pics]. After deleting the files from the desktop, they return after rebooting. I?ve search the forum and haven?t found anything that matches my situation, but I?ve tried the solutions of those that come close: deleting from windows explorer, dragging them to the recycle bin, shift-delete, changing their properties, etc.]. Please help, they?re like unwanted relatives that keep returning.

Your're Amazing!

That was it...I am using the program SyncBack and one of the settings was off on the nightly backup. Thank you so much for allowing me to sleep tonight.

Not so amazing, just that...

Someone near me was having this GHOSTLY issue and we nailed it last week. Spoils of war so to say.
