Arranging Windows 8 Tiles...
so infuriating, how can I disable the auto-arrange? I want my programs in a certain order but its like solving a Rubicon puzzle.
Its so much easier on Windows Phone to arrange my tiles exactly as I want them.
But in Windows 8? no! it constantly keeps shifting
and moving auto-arranging it self.
How can I switch this off?

I found both methods to work except for the first one to work, don't copy appdata folder.
The second method is simpler

Thank you for your response.
From the statement clearly indicates that Apps are working fine with the New User profile that means the old User account is corrupted on the computer.
Follow the steps and check,
I would suggest you to create a new user account and copy the old files from the old user account to the new user account,
Create a new user account with administrator
a) Press the “Windows Key + I”
b) Click More PC Settings
c) On the left, click Users
d) Click “Add a User”, and follow the onscreen instructions to create a new user account.
Copy old files to new profile:
a) Navigate to C:\Users\Corrupted_Profile_Name\.
The profile name will be the corrupted profile name.
b) Copy all the files.
c) Open Control panel and Folder View options uncheck Hide protected operating system files.
d) Navigate to C:\Users\Corrupted_Profile_Name and copy Appdata folder.
Note: Do not copy these three files.
NtUser.dat, NtUser.ini, NtUser.log.
Navigate to C:\Users\New_Profile_Name\.
Paste all those files here.
If you have any more suggestions/queries related to Windows feel free to post.
We will be happy to help you.

This is what I would recommend doing: Keep the account that is working, and make it an Admin from the other account (you always need to have an admin account, and the default is standard). Go to the new account and close the old account from where you
created the new one. Tell it to save your files. The old account will be deleted, but the files (documents, photos, videos, IE favorites, music) will be put in a folder on the desktop in the new account. Move them to where you want them, and leave the AppData
folder alone with the new files. It is quite possibly one of the files in the old AppData causing this. You will need to re-customize the trackpad, cursor (if you changed it), lock screen, colors, etc., but that shouldn't be too hard.

Open Action Center by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under System and Security, clicking Review your computer's status.
Update and run your antivirus software. Windows doesn't come with antivirus software, but Action Center can often monitor the antivirus software that you or your computer manufacturer have installed.
