Many of my desktop icons move when i restart my PC. When i shut down at night all my icons are placed where i want them to be. When i boot up in the morning some of the icons are moved . It usually happens to icons to items that have been changed or updated. OR new icons. how can i stop this? When you right click on the desktop you can change the arrange options. The only things i have checked off are : "align to grid" and "show desktop icons"
