Try this, right click on your Desktop.
Scroll up to Arrange Icons By, and if Auto Arrange has a tick beside it, remove the tick by clicking  on it.

Also, right click in an empty space on your Taskbar. (between the Start button and the clock)
Make sure that Lock the Taskbar has a tick beside it, if it hasn't then click on it to insert one.
