    You might check this also, right-click the desktop, point to Arrange Icons By and make sure that Lock Web Items on Desktop is un-checked.
    Then check this:
    Right-click the desktop and select Properties> Desktop tab> Customize Desktop button> Web tab> make sure that nothing
    is checked under Web pages: and that the box: Lock desktop items is not checked.
