    I use windows 10 since one month ago , and since that time I always use ESET as anti virus and nothing something happen like now. I remember these problems occur started 4 days ago. what this may be caused by the last update virus signature database?

    *) Sorry for bad english
    Good point, it might be caused by the latest virus signature update and maybe also the most recent windows update because some people not using ESET are also experiencing this problem.

    Its not the virus thats causing this issue but the eset does something when it detects a virus. Because I have come across detection of different types of virus by eset and each time the folder view settings gets broken. I have some old programs that are detected as false positive so I set them as exclusion. I never had issues with them before but now on Windows 10 and Eset.

    I'm using comodo now and it has also detected some virus but good thing is, folder view settings didn't break. Not to mention, those are my old programs detected as false positive.

    You have to either reset which makes your pc fresh (No files or apps in system drive) or restore to latest stored point.

    Restore is the best option because it takes less time and most of your apps are stored as well as all the files. Once restored, uninstall Eset before it finds any virus and use different AV softwares or stay with windows security software.

    More details about reset/restore, please check here

    Try this our of curiosity - ver easy. Notice I'm just looking at the desktop icon issue for now.
    Now what is the state of your 'Auto arrange icons' (rt click desktop, view, Auto arrange icons) when the icons ARE being auto arranged?
    Try unticking it- are they being auto arranged? Move a desktop icon somewhere. Now tick it- what happens to the icon? (It should move to the LHS) - now untick it, move a couple of icons somewhere and restart. You might expect that to ensure whatever records the setting should be set appropriately.

    If that has no effect, we then know something is overwriting the setting on each reboot, rather than it being one event.

    Or, it's some entirely different kind of corruption.

    ===============================================

    So just as before, try copying these two registry keys (they are big) from a working system.
    HKU\S-1-5-21-1874168061-3408090847-1495916866-1001\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist\{CEBFF5CD-ACE2-4F4F-9178-9926F41749EA}\Count\HRZR_PGYFRFFVBA:
    HKU\S-1-5-21-1874168061-3408090847-1495916866-1001\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist\{CEBFF5CD-ACE2-4F4F-9178-9926F41749EA}\Count\Q:\Ertvfgel Gbbyf\Ertfubg\Ertfubg 1-9 Havpbqr\Ertfubg-k86-Havpbqr.rkr:

    Go to the non-working PC.
    Find the equivalent keys in the registry, noting "S-1-5-21-1874168061-3408090847-1495916866-1001" will likely vary from PC to PC
    Export those and save them. (Precaution).

    Change that string in the .reg files you've exported from the working PC to match your non-working PC.
    Merge the keys on your non-working PC.
    Restart and check what happens to your desktop icons.

    ======================================
    If no progress, merge the reg files you exported from your non-working PC again to restore the original state.

    No problems here, windows icons are staying where I placed them. Folder views not changing.

    Well, I decided to do restore point, (back to 6 days ago when my folder view was fine). It fixed that problem and immediately removed eset (bye, bye eset!).
    Now folder view is running well.
    Sigh... what a relief!
    Folder view problem is very annoying. Couldn't work with that condition. Fortunately, I have restote points. Back to windows defender
