Icon Layout Reset Each Time I Turn The Computer On

  1. Hey guys / girls,
    This problem I first encountered about 2 days ago, and it has continued to bug me each time I turn on my computer in the morning. I have my icons nicely arranged to suit my needs (Recycle Bin in right hand corner, games on the top left etc etc). That was all fine, but now, when I turn on my computer, the icons all align to the left of the screen. Suggestions anyone?

    Here's what the right click looks like:
    Name, Size, Type, Modified - All Unchecked
    Auto Arrange - Unchecked
    Align To Grid - Checked
    Show Desktop Icons - Checked
    Lock Web Items - Unchecked

    What is your OS ? Suggest you chnage resolution of the desktop, reboot. Change resolution back, uncheck 'align with grid'. Replace icons exactly where you want them and reboot one final time.
