Default Icons not in place

Does anyone out there know how to lock desktop icons in place? Every time I
restart my computer my icons are all out of order. I have made sure that the
choices for Auto Arrange and Align to Grid are unchecked and checked at different times. OS is Vista.

thx

Checking Auto Arrange and Align to Grid should do it.

Have you installed any new software that loads at start-up?

It could also be a resolution issue. If something is trying to change the resolution, the icons will move around.

dang, you beat me too it.

If that is happening, i would think there could be a driver problem. I had faulty drivers that changed my resolution and my icons were all over the place.
