Windows 7: Unusual behaviour on desktop with files and menus.

Windows 7, 64bit Pro

I am unable to uncheck these two items, could this be the issue?
I can uncheck them, but when I click "Apply" the check mark comes back.

I am unable to uncheck these two items, as when I click apply, they recheck themselves.
I do run AVG, maybe it has to be disabled first?
If so, then it can't be these files causing the issue right?
I have never had a problem with AVG in the past.

AVG are your antivirus services, they should be checked.
When you say the issue wasn't there, and you started checking services did you just do them in 1 go?

Disable them once again and ..
Try enabling them 1 by 1, restart after each and see if you can find the culprit.

Behaviour of Desktop Icons during Startup
Not a problem, just amateur curiosity. Towards the end of my laptop boot, all the shortcuts (not the system icons) go blank then are quickly restored. Why's that?
