Icons frozen

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
This is annoying. I cannot move any of my icons. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem.

I can click on them and open them, I just cannot drag them anywhere.

    this is a finder bug... it is only a problem on the desktop right?

    logout and/or restart... it should get rid of the issue...

    I don't know what caused it. It started when I was surfing and a page started to download an unrequested file to me. ram.ram Actually everything was frozen on the computer. I could open them by clicking on them I just couldn't drag anything.

    After a bit of going around on my computer, trying to figure it out I realized that Apple in on the W. coast, so tech support was still open. I called they had me delete a few things from preferences, didn't work. They then had me run first aid from the startup disk. First aid told me that there were overlapping segments. I logged back into my account and the problem is gone.
