    Windows 10 - Desktop resets it self, license keys expired & more

    I noticed this first two-three days ago.

    - Skype constantly re-sets the status to "Online" when restarting it.
    - The desktop seems to keep getting re-set, even though I've moved all my icons to right side, they go back to left side.
    - Today when I started my computer, it said that START10 License has expired as well as Mailbird license..? Both of those had paid licenses, it's like it got removed..

    - Windows 10 64bit
    - Less than one month old desktop.

    The issue is extremely annoying, I am using "Geek Uninstaller" to uninstall programs. This scans for registries associated with specific program when uninstalling, and removes them. I have no idea if that could of caused registry from being broken, if that's the issue.

    No, I do not have any backups and I rather not re-install my computer entirely. As I recently got it, and installed all programs and files all over again :/

    Here is my entire process list, captured in a GIF: Imgur
    And here is my installed programs: Imgur

    I also have MX800 Keyboard and mouse from Logitech, that lags a lot. Graphic card randomly crashes "Has stopped working error" etc while doing normal work (not gaming).

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    I can tell you for a fact that the Start10 license is a registry value..
