Desktop icons rearrange themselves RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since I upgraded to XP about a year ago, I have had a problem with my desktop icons rearranging themselves when I turn off my computer at night.  It does not happen every night, but sporadically.   

    I have done the right click on the desktop and unchecked 'arrange icons by.'  I tried checking 'lock web items', although I don't know what this actually does, and it has not stopped the rearranging from occuring.  

     I do use Norton System Works and Internet Security, but the rearranging does not seem to be related to any activities by these programs. 

     This is driving me crazy! I want my desktop to stay the way I arrange it!
