There are numerous possible explanations for this. As a first step I would try restarting your computer in Safe Mode and trying to delete or move icons that way. If you can do that successfully then it is likely to be either a corrupt windows registry entry or even more likely some third party software running in the background on your computer at start up. To further diagnose this, you can open msconfig and disable all unnecessary start-up apps and see if that helps. I hope this helps get you pointed in the right direction. Cheers! :)
