    I think I've just found a temporary solution using Task scheduler and the batch file gaved in that thread
    You can find my modded batch attached at the end of the post (made some changes for admin privileges, nothing more)
    VIRUS TOTAL SCAN https://www.virustotal.com/it/file/8...is/1443861638/


    Open Task scheduler and create a new task

    Now choose a name for your task, select "Run wheter user is logged or not" and "Run with highest privileges" and Select configure for: Windows 10 (not sure if it changes something)

    Now go to Triggers tab and add a new trigger
    at Begin the task choose "On an event", leave basic, at Log choose System, Source "USER32" and Event ID "1074" as in the image below.

    Now click OK and go to Actions tab
    Add a New entry and choose Start a program and select your downloaded batch file for your OS version (32 or 64bit)
    On add arguments insert: par 1
    On Start in add your batch file folder location path, mine was
    C:\Users\Neri\Desktop\Updated FolderViewSettingsFix\ESET_FolderViewSettingsFix
    (not sure if these 2 entries changes something but for safety I recommend you to use it
    Click OK

    On Condition Tab untick all entries

    On Settings tab UNTICK "Stop the task if it runs longer than" and leave the rest as default

    If you want you can enable History but it's not necessary

    Now check if the registry dll is back to shell32.dll and try the task shutting down your computer

    If your icons are back at their default position you have done your job correctly, if not you have only to change your keys authorization on regedit to Administrator

    Hope you will find that guide helpful and feel free to ask anything you need:)

    Apologize me if I made some grammar mistakes but as you see from the screens I'm not native english :)

    Nice that you found a solution, and this might be a stupid question, but why keep files like that on your desktop?

    ESET_FolderViewSettingsFix thing worked for me I'm just overjoyed.. like asdfghjkl..
    But I'll post an update if some kind of error happens... but seriously it worked... If I'd known ESET was the cause.. hmmm
    as an update review.. the ESET Folder View Settings Fix works only if you do the safeboot and run the fix , every time you start your PC... which sucks..

    so I just uninstalled my ESET then run the CC Registry Cleaner... then for the last time, tried the ESET-FIX...
    and it actually worked.. i'm just gonna have to do with Windows Defender though.. for now... won't install other antivirus softwares..

    Hi all, I'm experiencing similar problems as you guys. Only, here it's just the order of the desktop icons resetting after every reboot. And also, they even moved back when I was using the computer a couple of times. I have deleted ESET, didn't help. I have changed those registry things, that didn't work either. Is it possible that I'm having a different problem than you guys?
