For years, my desktop icons have acted as if they only have so many "slots" to fit into on the desktop. BUt this was never a problem. They were easier to line up because they were either right next to each other, or one "slot" above/below/apart.

Now, for some reason, I can move the desktop icons tiny distances, as if they are scalar items that can be minimally nudged. Suddenly there are no more "slots", and kind of paradoxically the icons are harder to group and line up because I have to keep nudging them so they look straight. Before, they were either straight or a whole notch out of line.

I have downloaded and installed Classic Shell on my Asus laptop and I use Firefox. I am aiming to get Start button back.

for Windows 8.

Can't get the programme to open so the 'shell' does not appear. The programme is there (can see it in 'uninstall programmes' ) but it does not seem to open. It talks about IE so maybe it won't work on Firefox? it does not come up as an add-on' in Firefox.

Advice welcomed please. I'm not very skilful on line so please can you explain carefully. Tell me if you need more info. Thank you.

I am trying to secure my WRT54G Linksys router. Someone said I have to go through my browser, then enter 192.168.1.1 and this would bring up a page where I could change my password of my home network. I can not get any page remotely like that up. Right now, my home network is insecure. I checked it with my phone and it is wide open.

How do I secure my network? FireFox is my home page.
