I would remove Bitdefender and install microsoft's security essentials.

If you have the time just humor me by check the permissions of your desktop folder (c:\users\USER NAME\desktop) and try giving the group everyone full control. You probably will have to type in the name everyone.

Like I said if you have the time and feel so inclined.
