Desktop Icons won't lock
My pc was recently hit with several malwares, which messed up my pc pretty good. After I got rid of all of them, I noticed that one problem still remains: my desktop icons won't stay locked in place the way I want them. I would move the icons in one place, and it'll stay up until I refresh the page or restart the computer. They would all revert back to the left side of the desktop. Any way to lock these? I've already checked to see that auto arrange icons is turned on, even tried checking it and unchecking it. I also checked to see that "Allow themes to change desktop icons" in Desktop Icon Settings is unchecked.

Did you uncheck "Align icons to grid"?

I've tried unchecking it, then rechecking it. I still get the same problem. I'm starting to have a feeling that the malwares messed up the registry

NIKEZ, maybe it's time to consider doing this.
