JSI Tip 0350 - Have you lost the ability to move your desktop icons?

If you are no longer able to move your desktop icons, you might be missing some registry entries:

1. Copy / Paste the following into Notepad.exe:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\\{0000010e-0000-0000-C000-000000000046\}\]
@="IDataObject"

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\\{0000010e-0000-0000-C000-000000000046\}\NumMethods\]
@="12"

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\\{0000010e-0000-0000-C000-000000000046\}\OLEViewerIViewerCLSID\]
@="\{28D8ABA0-4B78-11CE-B27D-00AA001F73C1\}"

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Interface\\{0000010e-0000-0000-C000-000000000046\}\ProxyStubClsid32\]
@="\{00000320-0000-0000-C000-000000000046\}"
2. Save the file as MoveIt.txt.
