Have been using XP on my PC for over 2 years and no problem with icons moving on desktop. Purchased a new laptop with XP Home Edition recently and everytime I turn on the laptop it has rearranged my Icons. I want them to remain in the same location so I can locate them easily. Have tried all the options shown in "properties" and still the computer does its own things on startup. Any and all help appreciated. Yes, I tried using the same settings I have on my PC and still it scrambles the Icons on start up. My PC does have XP Pro, but that should not make a difference on this problem. Or could it?
