Registry change/desktop rearranging

#1
Hello, I've got a problem with desktop. After reboot/restart or even refresh desktop all icons are moved to left side of screen.

I found this solution:

In regedit go to those 2 destinations

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\
and
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{42aedc87-2188-41fd-b9a3-0c966feabec1}\InProcServer32\

Double click on (Default) and replace "%SystemRoot%\SysWow64\shell32.dll" with "%SystemRoot%\system32\windows.storage.dll" in both file destinations then restart your PC and everything should work fine !!"

It worked fine but when I restart pc it happens again AND registry is as it was before (so "shell32.dll" instead of "windows.storage.dll").

So my question is - why changes in registry are undone after reboot?
I did it in safe mode. I have unchecked "autoarrange". I don't have any malware or virus. I'm running Win10 (upgrade from 8.1). It's happening on Guest profile too.

Thank you for answers.

Welcome to the Forum!

Please provide make/model of the computer having this problem.

Did you remember to run the Windows UPGRADE ASSISTANT prior to your upgrade to Win10? This could be a driver problem, or it could be a problem with a piece of software that's not compatible with Win10.
