I can't get my ticker to resize or move around on my Windows desktop? How do I fix it?

You may have Lock Desktop items selected. To check for this:
  1. Go to your Control Panel and click on Display.
  2. Click on the Desktop tab and then click on the Customise Desktop button.
  3. Click on the Web tab.
  4. Make sure the Lock Desktop items check box (at the bottom of this pic) is unselected.
