Have you tried a System Restore yet? Restore to a previous State could solve your problem.
Also, could you please tell us what do you delete?

My desktop icons have all left I would like to. They are now lined up on the left side of the office and move where I want that they. This just happened recently. How can I fix this?
In the past, they would periodically change the resolution and move and I have to change the resolution and put them back where I wanted them.
Why resolution change without my entry?
resolution could change through the driver through windows update update
try going to your graphic card manufacturers site or computer and are looking for the driver download section

My iMac will be either reboot or shutdown of the apple on the desktop icon. Items saved on the desktop disappear and the menu from the top of the screen disappears, then it is just in this mode for ever more. I then use the switch to stop, which is clearly not the best way to ensure the longtivity of my system. I use El Capitan 10.11.3 [latest version] I have tried the following but still the same issue.
- I ran disk utility, but no hard drive errors appear.
- I stop after having disconnected all my other connections (USB components, components lightning etc.), but still no change.
Before you contact Apple directly, just wondering if anyone else out there he has a similar problem. I had my hard drive 3 TB replaced a few months back, in line with a reminder official apple and this problem started to reign around one month or later.
See you soon
Reset the SMC
Reset the NVRAM
If it is still not restart or shut down properly
This is not, reinstall OS X from recovery

1. what happens when you try to delete the files?
2. do you receive any error messages?
I suggest you to use the disk cleanup utility to remove the files. Disk Cleanup removes a variety of file system and other elements (including left on updates files) that you no longer need.

It happened when I tried to update c. 16 to 17 as well. I had go it and download v. 18 and he told me that she had and he asked me to restart Firefox. I clicked on the "Restart Firefox" button. He closed Firefox 17. I waited an hour and no Firefox had begun. I clicked on the icon on my desktop for Firefox, and I got a window with "another program is using the file.
The last time that happened, I had to uninstall v. 16, use Opera 12.12 to download version 17 and then installed, to have to set my preferences just a little and then I could start v. 17.
Why update your program allows me to update, instead of downloading a new program?
I'm on Windows XP SP3 and a very fast motherboard.
Finally, I decided to check if my AVG antivirus or IOBit Malware Fighter software is interfering and I disabled them temporarily. I restarted and then turned off these programs and then opens Firefox. It was as usual, 17.0.1 version not updated. I went to help, on Firefox, click Find updates. Downloading updates, invited to restart Firefox, and after closing Firefox, I got the window that says that he was installing the updates, for the first time for an attempt to update to version 17 or 18. He installed the updates and restarted in fact without any problems.
I was about to turn off all of my Add-ons for the next test. I never had to disable my AVG or IOBit before and they are the latest versions, too. AVG is the same version that allowed the update to v. 16 before. If something is different both Firefox 17 and 18, that it will not allow updates with AVG in force (or possibly IOBit Malware Fighter).
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. How can I change the color of the font describing the desktop icons?
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit. How can I change the color of the font describing the desktop icons?
You cannot change the font color of desktop.
Because desktop wallpaper images have different colors, it is easy for the colors of unreadable fonts if they are on top of the same color in a background image to display. For example, a black font on top a dark part of the background image or a white font on a white part of a background image.
The desktop icon fonts are dynamic and show white on dark background and change in white with a shadow effect black on a light background.
I hope this helps.
Thank you for using Windows 7

Separated from this thread.
I have the same problem. Whenever I reboot, it reorganizes my desktop icons and aligns the Office on the right. Like everyone else, auto arrange is disabled. What a real answer and fix? Hello MS, someone from home?
Welcome to the Microsoft community forums. Let me help you with your concern. You may experience this problem if align icons on the grid is enabled. Follow these steps and check.
Right-click on the desktop.
Select display, uncheck Align icons to grid and the auto arrange icons.
Now move the desktop icons, restart the computer and check.
I hope this helps. If you need help with Windows, let us know and will be happy to help you.
Windows 7 reorganizes my desktop icons after each reboot or after coming out of standby/hibernation.
I am running Windows 7 Build 7100 on a laptop Dell Latitude D830 completely standard (which includes a nVidia Quadro NVS 140 M graphics controller). All drivers are clean windows; I have not replaced all the drivers with vendor-specific versions.
I'm not using a KVM, I'm not using a projector or external monitor, and I never change the resolution of the screen. It couldn't be simpler: I start, move my desktop icons to where I like them, working for a few hours and closed. On the next reboot half of the desktop icons have been moved. There are no error messages or a warning during startup or shutdown, so no reason to explore should be unhappy.
Clearly, this is a bug. But what is the workaround?

We have windows vista with 2 user profiles that are the main ones used.
How can I add/remove/move the desktop icons on my profile without moving/remove on the profile of other people?
What is the point of having 2 different profiles, so everything I do on my effects profile profile of others?
also is it possible to add/remove programs (games, downloads) without doing the same for the other profile of people?
1. what type of user accounts that you use?
2. don't you log on as an administrator?
3. don't you make changes to the agreement of the issue occur?
When you install a program, you will need to select the installation option in particular only to user accounts. Not in user accounts. You can try the following steps.
Desktop shortcuts are stored in one of two places:
(a) in c:\Users\Public\Desktop. These shortcuts are shared and are visible to the user ever.
(b) in c:\Users\UserName\Desktop. These shortcuts are not shared and are visible to the user.
When you right click on a shortcut, and then click general, then you can see where this particular shortcut is stored.
To make a shortcut of the group a) visible to yourself, do this method:
a. drag the shortcut to the side with the right button of the mouse.
b. Select "copy". You have now two seemingly identical shortcuts.
c. delete the original shortcut.

No idea. See how to backup your iTunes for Windows with SyncToy library and make sure that you don't waste any more.
Whenever Firefox updates, it disables all my addons and presents me with a line of tabs, in which I need to check a checkbox, click a button to continue and select restart, or not, for each of the addons. I think I do something wrong, because surely I'm not the only person who would find this irritating, because it seems to happen once a week, but I searched the menu, selected "Automatically install updates", and it is not automatic.
This occurs when the extension of the registry files are either deleted or get corrupted and the new files are created.
Delete the files (extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini) extensions.* and compatibility.ini in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the extensions registry.
New files will be created if necessary.
See "extension corrupted files:
If you see disabled extensions or is not compatible in ' Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions ' and then click the Tools button, on the side of the left end of the search bar ('Find updates' button in older versions of Firefox) to check if there is an update available compatibility.
If this did not help, then also delete the addons.sqlite file.
This can also be caused by problems with preferences.
Rename or remove the file prefs.js and possible numbered prefs-# .js and a user.js file possible to reset all default prefs.
