Hello and welcome.

-Which version of OS X?

Is it 10.9.x Mavericks by any chance? This is a known bug in Mavericks. One thing that seems to fix it is to change the Arrange by option using the Action button (looks like a sprocket) in the toolbar of the Desktop window in Finder. Change it to any other view option. Another thing is to repair disk permissions using Disk Utility in the Applications > Utilities folder.

Let us know if those don't work.
