Question XP trouble..

hey guys ive run into a bit of a problem when i installed sp3, i cant delete an icon from my desktop if i drag it to the recycle bin or copy/move files in my documents or any other folder. i either have to use the shortcuts or right click my mouse and select to delete/copy/move files. is there anyway to fix this?

XP update delayed over glitch | Beyond Binary - A blog by Ina Fried - CNET News.com

Seems as if there is still issues with SP3.

As for your specific issue. Seems to be something more in depth. Cause I am running SP3 and i have not come across this issue.

Follow Osiris's Guide to Spyware removal:

Yes. If the spyware scans come out clean. Do a restore.

Do you get an error message when trying to move the icons by dragging them?
