Had a crash on my intelbased iMac running Lion, restarted and ran Disk utility. in Verify Disk I had a report of "incorrect Number of File Hard Links" and "orphaned File Inode (ID=10723224." Ran Disk Repair and report said repaid completed successfully. However, all my desktop items disappeared. Do i have to restore them individually or is this a sign that something remains wrong in my system?

Crash occurred while I was in Word for Mac using Collins Thesaurus. is this an incompatible product or did crash just happen to occur then?
