    Taskbar icons rearrange when computer freezes


    I just upgraded to Windows 10 from W7, but an issue from 7 remains. When my computer freezes, all the icons in my taskbar rearrange themselves into an unintended order--mainly within the individual programs since I pinned my main icons to the taskbar. This issue seemed to have resolved itself when I upgraded to 10, but it just occurred again. I had an I.T. guy look at my computer when I still had 7, and he determined that the issue was not hardware-related, and he suggested that I clear my hard drive and reinstall the operating system. Are any less-drastic repair options available? I've run numerous anti-virus and anti-malware scans, but nothing has been detected. Thank you for your assistance.

    :)

  2. Icon Rearranges Themselves Upon restrart or Using refresh in Windows 10 Pro x64 (Build 1703.15063.483)

    As per your instructions i have created a new user account but same problem persists. I have noticed a thing that whenever i enable "use small taskbar buttons" nothing rearranges except the last two icons and i cannot arrange them by my own unless i have
    not selected the "arrange desktop icon" option from desktop. And even after selecting that on every refresh it rearranges automatically.

    Here is the Screenshot which states only last two icons rearranges

    And if i disable the "use small taskbar buttons" option from taskbar settings all icons comes back to the position and then it doesnt rearrange. The problem is only occuring when i am using small taskbar button option.

    Please help me every time i need to rearrange icons.
