    Now, reading the last post, it seems the only problem is for desktop icons.

    I don't have that problem. I don't have any icons on desktop but Rainmeter only.
    But I still have the problem of sorting order for folder and we are discussing here and in other forums to find a solution.

    Do you still have that problem?

    Hi, looking at the registry entry in the first article:
    Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU\0\1
    as well as the first (desktop) I see 4 keys referring to shell.

    I don't have this particular problem, thankfully, but if you were very lucky, it could be that there lies your answer.. it would need someone to try it.

    Thanks DrUnKeNTiGeR.

    1. to crosscheck, can you confirm Auto Arrange Icons is not checked (rt click desktop, view).
    2. can you experiment with the settings from rt click desktop, Desktop Icon Positions, manually saving and restoring positions, and Automatically restore icon layout on resolution change

    Seems we need a bit more info to find the right direction.
    Meanwhile, further searches might yield an alternative.

    Note that the article I cited said this:
    I could not get into Bags\1 - 'Error on opening' message but I could get into permissions which I reset including the 'owner' tab.

    So it might be reasonable to suggest that if this was not true, that solution might not apply.
    So did you not a permissions issue at all?

    I am aware that you stated that you couldn't find the entry I thought I would try it anyway.
    I of course dont have auto arrange checked. i have tried turning it on and then off again no change.
    only option i see currently is to use an application till Microsoft fixes the issue. And yes I will continue searching however I felt this was the most promising thread on the issue.

    Hi, I do have that entry, hence my comment about the keys relating to the shell. (Never said I didn't).
    Fortunately I don't have the problem.. (and I do use periodic disk imaging, so should it occur I guess I'd notice fairly quickly and be able to revert to a recent image).

    All the threads I've read either end up reinstalling in some way or other or proposing 3rd party software.
    So- there is a work around for desktop icons, and explorer settings changing perhaps aren't so irritating- and one can generally use a 3rd party file manager. Hmm.

    It is, as you know, an exceedingly commonly reported issue.
    I don't have the updates mentioned in
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...a47da31?page=1
    but I do have all updates to date.

    Ok, so I've had a look a couple of times at what changes in the registry when desktop icons are moved.
    For what it's worth here are some entries that seem involved.
    I tried setting 'Auto arrange' - I thought there would be a related key that could be easily identified, but this didn't show up as such. These are the ones that changed.

    It would be no more than a guess that the last two are related.

    With appropriate precautions, you could try merging those entries from a 'good' build, bearing in mind this is no more than an experiment.

    I have this problem too!
    But only in my desktop and not on my laptop.
    The reason that makes me believe that the problem is related to ESET NOD 32 Beta 9.0.141.0 is because it´s installed on my desktop.
    My laptop have all the updates until today and no problem whatsoever and on the laptop I am running the ESET NOD 32 version 8.0.319.1. (no problem on the desktop and no problem in the folder views).

    Guys please check if all of you that have this problem have installed the beta version of ESET NOD 32 Beta 9.0.141.0.
