Right click the clock in task bar select adjust date/time goto Timezone tab and untick daylight savings time.

Everytime it changes for british summertime all my desktop icons are all shoved to one side. This means I have to put them back into the order I had before which is a pain in the a***. When you get old like me you change gets confusing and you need all the help you can get!! Hope that answers your question.

Bun, I don't understand how that is happening, I have ME and when the clock on my PC automatically changes my Icons stay put.

Surely your clock is changing every second. Why should windows changing it for summer time affect your desktop icons and what happens whenever you change the time?

I have never had any moving icons when the clock changed, with either Win98, WinME or WinXP.

It's down to PCA, they are changing the clock a bit at a time until BST is no more, when the time to change the clocks arrives all icons on desktops will automatically change to the PCA logo. There will be a new forum soon to help with problems. LOL

When the clocks go forward or back the only thing that happens - apart from the OS time correction - is that Windows posts a panel asking if I wish to retain/conform the changes?

All you do then is OK the panel; the Desktop is completely unaffected and has been over many years of using Windows in various flavours.

Have you right clicked on the Desktop and from the menu chosen the Arrange Icons By mode you require?
