I have this strange problem.

I am not able to drag and drop files to sektop.

Even I cannot move any icon on the desktop (auto arrange is off).

All this started after boot up one day. I dont remember installing / uninstalling/ making any
configuration changes before that.

Occasionally Explorer hangs and I have to End Task and start it again in Task Manager.

Virus check(AVG) and malware chech(Spyware doctor) turns up nothing.

What could be the reason?

Have you verified that the Drag and Drop feature is turned on?

You can set this function manually in the Taskbar and Start Menu applet.

| Start >> Control Panel >> Taskbar and Start Menu |

When the applet opens, you want to choose the Start Menu tab, then click Customize. This will open the Customize Start Menu applet. When the Customize Start Menu applet opens, select the Advanced tab. In the section of the Advanced tab titled "Start menu items" you want to ensure that the check box for Enable drag and drop is checked. This check box appears under the Control Panel selection buttons.
