    I can't do it by my self this with the registry.
    Maybe some simplified tutorial (with pictures) will be needed for more common windows users like me.

    thank you

    Hi, I can confirm those keys do not exist on my PC (I use Bitdefender).
    As these symptoms (folder view, desk top icons) have affected many others thru several generations of Windows I assume there is another mechanism that can give rise to the same symptoms, as far as I know, without reliable solution.
    hi
    thanks
    i mean for reporting about bitdefender, may i ask you a question ?
    have you the same problem? i mean about icons and folders

    Hi, fortunately not, but I'm intrigued that this thread has found a root cause in this instance. However the many reports of the same symptoms over years suggest Nod32 isn't the only instigator. I found one registry key common to both desktop icons auto-arranging and folder view settings not being retained, but could not force the symptoms to occur either via that or the better known 'shell\Bags' keys. Other 'fixes' posted only seem to work for a few users.

    Hi, if you use a registry editor that allows you to cut and paste the whole key location into the equivalent of the address bar, all you have to do is launch the editor, paste in the key, and you're there.

    Regeditx,
    Download RegEditX - MajorGeeks
    O&O Regeditorhttp://www.oo-software.com/en/products/ooregeditor

    for example. Freeware.

    My bad, I forgot to add lines changing the permissions of the registry keys.
