Desktop icons keep moving around


I have an IBM T43 with a 1400x1050 screen res running XP. Whenever my machine goes into screen-saver the icons I keep on the right hand side of the screen move around. I use iconrestore to quickly put them back but this is really annoying doing it all the time.

I have noticed that if I keep them right justified within what looks like a 1024x768 margin then this doesn't happen, but defeats the purpose as then they are under my windows.

Does anyone have a workaround or fix for this?

Thanks...

try changing your screensaver to a windows standard screensaver. I believe that your screensaver is changing your resolution down to 1024*768 to display the screensaver graphics. check in the properties of the screensaver you are using for display options.
