What happens if you do right mouse button drag and then in the context menu click copy here? What happen if you copy and then paste on the Desktop?

You may try typing and running "regsvr32 /i shell32" at the Command Prompt without the inverted commas and then rebooting to see if the problem gets solved. Please make sure that you have given space after regsvr32 and there is also space between I and shell32.

Solution

This sounds too simple to work, but it worked for me:

1) Find an affected icon.
2) Click and HOLD the icon with the Left mouse button.
3) Press Esc while holding the Left mouse button.
