Vista Desktop Icons

Anyone out there can tell me how to fix the position of desktop icons. Sometimes, a slight error can move the icons - is there a way to retain the positions. Suggestions gratefully received.

Right click on the desktop. Select View and untick align to grid' and 'auto arrange'. Your icond should now remain where you left them.

I can confirm that Icon Restore works with Vista Home Premium 32bit even though it doesn't show on the website. Very handy little programme, especially useful after starting up again from using Safe Mode when the icons are everywhere.
