Hi, you have to make sure that you login with the username that has the administrator right, if you are using it then check the attributes of the icons if they are set to the read-only then uncheck the check mark to make it move.

Please let me know the operating system you are using is it xp or vista?

as i told you earlier you have to make sure that the login has the admin rights then only you will be able to move or modify folders and icons.
