I created an account on the forums just to say thank you, and also offer a potential warning.

I've been going nuts trying to sort out my grandmothers laptop which started doing the auto-arrange thing about a month ago. The Reg key you mention fixed the problem once it was removed.

*However*, I did a bit more searching for that clsid and it seems to show up a lot in reference to a rootkit Trojan that may have infected the computer. I know there was a Trojan on this laptop, and it has been very hard to get rid of, and now I suspect it may be related to this registry key also.

So, you may also want to check you don't have something else going on.

I used Rogue Killer to confirm it was there,

And then used the Symantec FixZeroAccess util to get rid of it
