  3. desktop grid lines

    Hi,

    If you accidentally align to grid your desktop icons, then you can quickly undo this to restore your previous desktop icons. You just have to right click or press and hold on your desktop (Shift+F10), click/tap on View, and click/tap on Align icons to grid
    to check (on - default) or uncheck (off) it.

    Get back to us if you need further assistance.

    You might wanna get rid of that and use the straight Antivirus. It'll use the same Eset login as Smart Security. See, Smart Security adds it's own firewall, and that might be interfering. But even without the Firewall to consider, If the settings are propagated via your MS Account to other machines, what could be happening is that another machine which uses your MS account login could be resetting your preferences for your desktop icons. I had three Windows 8 machines at one time, each overwriting each others settings until I finally figured out how to prevent it.

    Hi, can you confirm you have both symptoms- desktop icons rearranging unexpectedly + folder view settings in explorer not staying as set, or ONLY your desktop icons rearranging unexpectedly.

    As for permissions, you do need to follow the instructions carefully- the thread is long as it has evolved, so make sure you use the most helpful presentation of the fix. Probably best to report any difficulty there so interested people who've done this could help you. Noted some others there report permissions problems too.
