I'm posting this here in Security because of the issues I've had over the past few days. I thought I had taken care of everything using MBAM, Spybot S&D, TDSSKiller, and SFC, but something is still amiss: my desktop icons won't "stick" where I put them, and it's never done this before in the ~20+ months I've had this machine.
I run dual widescreen monitors, one 24" 1920x1200 and one 21" 1920x1080. I keep my task bar and icons all on my right 21" display, so that my main work application gets as much screen real estate as possible on the left 24" display as possible, and I don't have to keep minimizing it to access the icon shortcuts, etc.
Now suddenly every time I log off and then log back on, all icons are lined up in a single column on the left side of my left 24" display. If I arrange them all again and then right-click Refresh, they all pop back over there again!
This has to be something related to the security issues I was having last week. It's never done this before except for when I RDP in from home, and even then the only thing that happens when I get back in the office is the task bar is on my left screen. The icons typically stay on the right where I leave them. But not anymore.
What could be going on here?
