    Icons, Text size and other things change or get scrambled


    Hi, I would like to report some weird behavior on my PC and get adequate help for it.

    My problem pertains about Icons on my Desktop who get scrambled, or Fonts I set in Winaero Tweaker to enlarge text for Menu's, Statusbar etc who are set back without my intervention. Usually when I reboot, but not every time.

    I also use DesktopOK to save my Icon layout and there are times DesktopOK can put them back and other times when its to no avail. In Winaero Tweaker I set the horizontal & vertical spacing of my Desktop icons to a certain number I like and also this gets messed up. And the Taskbar gets bigger too!

    I already tried sfc/scannow, DISM, Ccleaner & Thumbnail and Icon Cache Rebuilder found here:
    Rebuild Icon Cache, Clear Thumbnail cache in Windows 10

    When I use tools ShellBag Analyzer or PrivaZer v3.0.53 my problems are gone, for a day, or two, but quickly come back, what could be the cause?

    PrivaZer v3.0.53: Free PC cleaner - Download
    ShellBag Analyzer: Free PC cleaner - Download

    PS Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, Drivers and the majority of my Software is up to date, and no AV problems.

    Please advise...

    :)
