With Windows 10, I have experienced slow updates of desktop icons. When I add a file to desktop, no icon appeared and I had to refresh. But now, all desktop icons are automatically arranged alphanumerically on left side of the screen. When I move an icon and hit refresh, the icon goes back to left. That is an annoying error (no, I do not have auto-arrange-icons turned on). I thought the solution would be quite simple because I was not the only one with this error on the internet. But none of suggested solutions worked for me. I had to use a software called Fences (by Stardock) to keep icons at their places. When I hit refresh, icons go left first, but then they are moved to their right places by Fences.
UPDATE: I mentioned that also folder view settings is not persistent. And I have found a workaround on the net. The issue is caused by ESET (Antivirus or Security). I copy the solution here just in case the original thread will be deleted:

A user from the ESET forums named AREZCO has posted a manual fix.
Run regedit (start menu > run/search > regedit) and go to these 2 destinations:
Double click on (Default) and replace „%SystemRoot%\SysWow64\shell32.dll“ with „%SystemRoot%\system32\windows.storage.dll“ in both file destinations.

Edit: 9/27/2015 [Auto Fix]
Forum user Zash has provided an auto fix which can now be used. You must reboot into safe mode first and then proceed to run the applicable version depending on which version of Windows 10 you are using (32 bit or 64 bit).
