Desktop Icons Just won't stay in place

  Evolution 19:48 11 Oct 2005


I've posted a thread before about this issue.

I have a Dell Inspiron XPS running Windows XP. Graphics are supplied by an Nvidea 6800 Go Ultra with latest drivers.

I'm running a screen resolution of 1600 x 1200, icons at 96dpi.

No matter how often I set the icon layout to how I want it, upon reboot the icons are randomly scrambled.

Current settings checked are:

Align to Grid
Show Desktop icons
Lock Web Icons

I've tried a combination of these as well but no joy.

I also installed a little utility called Icon Restore that was recommended but even this fails to set the icons in place or indeed restore them to how I saved them if things are scrambled again.

Any ideas would be greatly welcome.
