    Hi, in another thread on this forum, people using ESET Nod32 have found a solution to their problem giving rise to the same symptoms, related to two specific registry keys. I'm just wondering if anyone else has the same keys on their PC and whether this is of any help or points in any useful direction for others.


    "A FIX WAS FOUND ON THE ESET WEBSITE
    I will provide the FIX here and walk you through it
    FIX was found by AREZCO

    In regedit go to those 2 destinations

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\
    and
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\

    Double click on (Default) and replace
    "%SystemRoot%\SysWow64\shell32.dll" with "%SystemRoot%\system32\windows.storage.dll" in both file destinations then restart your PC and everything should work fine !!"

    Hi Digitall90, do you have ESET Nod32 installed? I don't have those keys at all (and thankfully I don't have the problem, just intrigued as it's so common).

    Can you explain what is the relation between this file and the problems encountered ?

    Ah, finally understood.
    I believe 32 bit OS's will only have
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32
    whereas 64 bit OS's have that and
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\

    I only have the first- my OS is 32 bits.

    Note that another solution which only
    addresses folder view settings, related to a possible size limit of "BagMRU Size", has been proposed (from XP onwards), noting it concerns the number of folders for which Windows holds records.

    Thus it would not correct issues with desktop icons being rearranged.

    I have tried that Bag MRU registry fix and it didn't work in Windows 10.
    Why? Because it's a "Folder View Settings" problem.
    It's not only the desktop that has a problem, but all the folders related to explorer.exe.
