Desktop Icons

When I right click on my desktop to arrange my icons by name they arrange themselves in alphabetical descending order.  In other words my Trash Icon is at the bottom right hand side of all my icons and not the top left.  How do I get this back to ascending order?  I do not know how it got like this in the first place.  Please help.  I have tried everything and all FAQ's.

Quick Fix--
Move the icons to where you want them
right click the desk top, and click line up icons..
this is quick work around


Check the desktop area of  the Windows Directory, and change the order of the files.

Also check the defagmenter, is it set for decending order?  or ascending order? (I'm thinking like in the old dos 6.22 utllity)..

Problem is most likely in the registry though...

If the "quick fix" above is unsatisfactory we can always get into the registry...
