Desktop Icons

Aligned desktop icons as I want them on left hand side of screen (Win XP Home) Auto Arrange and Align to Grid both unchecked. On restart or Switching on, Icons line up in different order to the way I had them set. Any ideas welcome.

oswald,

right-click on desktop, select properties-desktop-customise desktop-web, and tick box saying "lock desktop items" and apply.

Sorry Joe R, That doesn't appear to work. Thankyou for trying.

oswald,

align to grid should be checked, before setting, and remember to click on the apply button before exiting desktop properties.

Joe R.
The Icons still revert back to the same set order.This silly annoying problem only cropped up a couple of days ago, so I'm going to do a 'Restore' and see what happens!

Joe R; Curio. Following 'Restore' everything OK again. Interesting thing is that both 'Auto Arrange' & Align to Grid' both checked!!
Thanks for your input.
