Hi

I have somehow managed to put system folders on to my desktop and would like to put them back where they belong.
Can someone please tell me where they go & how to get them there? (

Thanks

A lot of the icons that you are showing are short cuts that are on the desk top. Those that have the arrow in the lower left corner are short cuts to programs you have installed. They should also have a link to start them in the "all programs" from the start button.

I had been doing (under advice) a malware clean up and moved a couple of applications from my download folder to my desktop. I think that I somehow also moved the sysyem folders. I'm just not sure where to put them. I don't want to use system restore due to all the other fixes which have been made during the clean up.

Just drag them to the recylce bin.
Run CCleaner which gringo had you install.
Reboot your machine and they will be in the original spot.
Do not worry deleting the icon's will not remove the folders. :thumbsup:
