Question Gnome desktop problem

I have redhat 7.1 installed on my desktop,
every so often I login and none of the desktop icons appear, and the file manager is not available, ie, nothing happens when you click it.

Has anybody seens this happpen before, or would you be able to give me some pointers as to where any error log might be.
