Windows 7, SP1 32 bit
4gb RAM

1) Every time I restart my computer the icons on the desktop are completely scrambled. Thankfully I have a program that will restore them to their proper position. Originally I thought this may be due to an infection so I ran MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware Free and both of them had no infections.

2) Also, on restart two open windows appear.

Computer > OS(C:) > Program Data > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu > Programs > Startup > -Disabled

Computer > OS(C:) > User > My Name > Appdata > Roaming > Microsoft > Windows > Start Menu >
Programs > Startup > -Disabled

3) I have two icons on my desktop, Libraries and Home Group, that I am unable to remove.

4) Sometimes when I start a program requiring User Account Control, verification is required twice. First on
the taskbar and then with the UAC window. Other times only with the UAC window. Why does this happen?


Thank you in advance for your help.

Just a though. If it was my computer the first thing I would do is remove that program you are thankful for and let Windows 7 take care of such things. After that being done I would run scans with Malwarebutes Anti Malware and you anti virus both updated. If you come out clean I would run off the cmd sfc /scannow. If it finds a problem run it two more times. Some of those little programs can cause a lot of hell and hardship.

Problem #1 seems to have resolved itself. Scannow executed error free.

Is there anyone out there who can help me with the other problems?
:wacko:
