    Desktop Icons stuck on left side and Explorer view stuck on Details

    Here's is basically how my system is:
    1. All my desktop icons are stuck on the left side of the desktop
    2. All file explorer view are stuck in details view.

    Now yes, I have turned off Auto-arrange, still refreshes to all icons on left. I have tired ALL sorts combinations of view + sort by... nothing.

    I have tired many anti-malware/virus scans and nothing has come up. I have tired CCleaner pretty much everything and the problem persists.

    Of note, I had done a system restore a week and half ago to a specific point and that fixed the problem but for just a day, then it happened again. When I got around to having time to go for another system restore, that restore point was gone and now no other restore point is fixing the issue -_-

    That left me to think it might be something I installed or perhaps a windows update... but after having uninstalled pretty much everything I could that I installed in the last week as well as removing recent updates.... nothing.

    I have also tried making a new windows account (local)... nothing. Also tried in safe mode, still nothing.

    Sooooo, there must be something fcked in my registry or it's something I have no clue about. Google searching has left me nowhere so I begging for some help pls. Thanks~

    oh, I was thinking I'd have to try for a reset my PC but a repair install sounds like a better option right now. Thanks~
    I'll have a go and see if fixes shit.
