Desktop icon doesn't really tell us much. 

 

What icon are you talking about?

 

The only thing I can tell from the thumbnail is that the Taskbar is at the top of the desktop.  Is this your problem?

 

If this is the problem right click in a clear area in the Taskbar and click on Properties.  There is a box titled Taskbar location on screen, this will give you the options for its location.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I would appear that we are having trouble communicating.

 

You have the My LastPass Vault icon, above that is the Recycle Bin icon, above that is the My Computer icon.  The My Computer isn't the default Windows icon, is this what you are referring to?

The LastPass icon is underneath (not below) the Generic Windows icon (you can see the red bordering it) That same generic icon will sit on top of whatever programs icon is supposed to be there.

 

Heres a blown up version

Now I understand.

 

Unfortunately the picture isn't clear enough to see what the icon is for, can you tell us what it is?

 

What happens if you click and drag the icon covering the LastPass icon?

I think youre still missing the point.

 

No matter what shortcut I add to the desktop the other icon sits on top of it.

 

Heres an example....I just added these shortcuts to the desktop.

It has taken four posts to get enough information to finally understand your situation.

 

Please answer these questions.

 

What happens when you try to click and drag the icon to a different location on the desktop?

 

What happens when you try to delete the icon?

Sometimes it's difficult to produce a clear and concise view of what is happening, the result of obscure information is confusion. :thumbup2: 

 

I'm beginning to suspect that you have an infection.  I will see if I can get this moved to the Am I Infected? forum.

I dont believe thats the case, I believe its some sort of error. It presented itself after doing some cleanup with CCleaner
