All Files on Desktop Locked in Place

Postby fearvirus » Sat 10 Dec 2016 12:06 am

All the files on my Desktop are locked in Place. They can't be moved. Is that a virus? I'm scanning the Desktop right now with ClamXav. Nothing has shown up as a virus with ClamX Sentry running, and it's scanning my user folder. It's been running for about 3 hours. If I open other folders, not on my Desktop, I can move files around.

No. Problems with the OS almost never involve malware.
