For about 3 weeks now my desktop icons randomly change size, location and sometimes even disappear and reappear

 

I can find no apparent reason for this. Nothing in my logs, firewall or network monitor that seems to correspond.

The only explanation that comes to mind is malware.

That is what I was thinking as well.  However I have been to the malware forum so often this year I think they may have locked the door. LOL

 

However that does not prevent the fact that my security programs may have been breached since I last ran all of those tools.
