I am the only user of my home PC and my privileges are set to Administrator. This is what I checked from the Control Panel.

Whenever I place any .exe file on the desktop, it becomes difficult to get rid of it. Neither I am able to delete it nor rename. Neither it can be moved to some other place. It displays warning "You do not have permission...blah..blah...blah".

When I right-click on it and try to set ownership to Administrator, that is also not permitted. How to set complete administrative privileges to my own Administrator account (don't know why it is showing administrator), and how to get rid of these files.

Try to create new admin account and see if you have same problems.

@chrischris: Tried that as well and even from Safe-Mode, still the problem persists.
