Moving Icons on Desktop

Just a query on why my icons in Win XP have moved from the position that I originally set.

I have just noticed when i downloaded a file lastnight and put it on my desktop it was'nt in its original position when i switched my machine back on and some other icons seemd to have moved

Just want to know if this is a known problem/virus/or their is something more sinister in my computer.

Any Ideas anyone?

hi Khaki, don`t think it`s anything sinister, as it sometimes happens on my pc, after screen res. is changed.O.S is Win Xp Pro.

It also depends on your "arrange icons by" settings. Whether they are by name, type, or modified etc.
