    Can't drag icons

    So whenever i try to move an icon on my desktop it just shows a black circle with a line through it showing that i cant move it.
    I have got fences and circle dock installed not sure if its anything to do with them? I've tried hitting escape and unchecking "auto arrange icons" but it doesn't work
    Cheers in advance
