I have Vista 64 and when i try to move my icons on the desktop they all move back in a row when i click 'refresh' for the dekstop or when i reboot. Also i keep the setting for the size on Classic instead of Medium or Large, and when i reboot it reverts back to Medium size icons everytime, but if i click 'refresh' it keeps the CLassic size for them, only changed on reboot.
i did run Eset online scanner and it is finding nothing. i am completely puzzled by this and cannot figure out what to try next.
any help would be much appreciated..

You can make icons larger or smaller by holding down CTRL while you move the mousewheel backwards and forwards.

yes, i tried that and the icons will move and stay until i rt click and click refresh or reboot, the icons go right back in column. its almost like the align to grid is checked even though it isnt.
also, like i posted above, the icon size is changing on reboot, i always have it on Classic and for some reason it goes to Medium on reboot.

Also, i created a 2nd Administrator account on this PC and went into the desktop and changed the size to classic and moved icons around and then clicked refresh, and it is totally fine on that account. Also i have a regular user account the is also fine and showing any of the problems that i have posted. So this seems to be specific to this account only..
again, thank u for your time and any help i appreciate.
forgot to add in > i did run Eset online scan again (as i originally posted, and it finds nothing)

This is because the virus you removed with the online scanner also incorporates a rootkit which might have escaped its attention.

We DO NOT remove Rootkits here in Vista,
Please also add a DDS log to this one.
Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.
Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.
Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.
Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The current wait time is 1 - 5 days and ALL logs are answered.
If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
