When another user runs a program which alters the screen resolution itjumbles up my nice orderly desktop. Is it possible to lock my desktop layout?

Not as I know of unless you are prepared to use "Third Party Software"

What third party software?

I am not too sure, but I know that there are some programs out there to do this.... Just "google" it...

There is this i have found (took 3 seconds from a google search): click here

As all I`m worried about is appearance, not security, it`s a bit of a sledgehammer but thanks anyway.

what operating system are you using, if XP then make your user account in documents and settings folder PRIVATE! and create other user accounts it may be because the account the program is run on is causing the problem, if that account is an administrator then it will effect you! try runing it on a limited account or changinh your secreen resalution and then aranging your icons etc...

PS: Third Party software is a program by another developer doing the job or changing the origanal software like a plug-in E.g. seeing all shutdown, restart, standby, hibernat, logoff, switch users in all one box instead of using 2 diffrent split up ways of showing them!
