    Default Can't drag & drop or select several files. Desktop icons or windows can't be moved


    First of all that you for you time and help.

    Today I found a problem that is getting me crazy.
    I can't drag and drop files or select several files at once, my desktop icons can't be moved and I can't move program windows.
    I've tried everything possible in the internet:

    - The ESC trick
    - sfc /scannow
    - Bitdefender scan
    - Malwarebytes scan
    - Superantispyware scan
    - Rogue killer scan
    - Hitman pro 3 scan
    - Fixwin tool
    - Windows fixit tools
    - Classic shell
    - Tweaking Windows repair tool
    - Adware cleaner
    - and so on...
    I can't drag & drop or select several files. Desktop icons or windows can't be moved.
    I can not perform a clean install because here computers are sold without windows DVD...
    I can not perform a system restore because it stopped working as well...
    Command line was not working but I repair it...

    I have no idea what to do anymore... This never happened to me before!

    Is it possible that some kind of malware changed this setting in registry? Can I fix this?

    Please help me!

    Thank you so much...

    Boot in Safe Mode and see if the problem persists. If so, then perform a Clean Boot and again see if the problem goes away or stays. If it does, then it is some program or startup which is interfering with the smooth functioning of Windows. In the Clean Boot State, try to identify the culprit and disable or remove it.

    Do you have any third-party software installed? If yes, do uninstall it and run SFC /SCANNOW in administrative Command Prompt then. Also confirm the registry entries mentioned once again:
