  1. Several friends have reported the same "rearrangement of icons" that I have been observing. When Windows updates and sometimes even when my computer just is turned on or comes back from hibernation all of my icons have been stacked on one side of the monitor. The switch "View/Auto Arrange Icons" is turned off. The switch "align icons to grid" was turned off, but now I notice that it is back on. Though this is merely an inconvenience, I am concerned that this is some sort of malware. Malwarebytes keeps saying nothing is detected. In the world of biological viruses, the ones that are more likely to survive are the ones that don't make their host go to the doctor. Considering that the psychology of a virus maker and an arsonist would seem to be similar, this sort of benign "there but not obvious" virus would be the perfect candidate to make a very big thing that someone could say, "I did that." It could also be a test run of how to make a pervasive virus. How would we ask the people at Malwarebytes to consider this a virus?
