cannot move an icon

I can move all icons on my laptop ( win 8), except one namely "homegroup" , which I think recently installed after a windows update. Right click, view,auto arrange unticked, would not move the icon. Any ideas?

I turned Win 8 into a virtual xp. Although I still have XP as a dual boot.

You can't move it, but you can remove it. This is a problem that has been with us since Windows 7.

After a restart and windows update as instructed by win 8, the "homegroup" icon disappeared, very strange!!
