Peter while my primary PC is a Mac, I do support some Windows boxes and think I can shed some light on a couple of items.

Peter <== adopted Windows 7 just in time for Windows 8 to be released

I am so glad you were lucky Peter. From my personal exposure/testing of Win8 over the spring and summer, I informed the folks I would not support or mess with Win8. Additionally the actual sales and adoption figures show the adoption of Win8 to be much slower than Win7.

I never heard of Fences before. But you commented that remote connection causes issues with the icons on your Desktop. My wife regularly connects to PCs remotely using LogMeIn and has not reported any such issues. She certainly can move, create or delete icons - but that is not what I understand is your issue. My wife uses the free version of LogMeIn.
