I have a windows XP machine that for some reason rearranges the desktop icons after a restart if the option to align to grid is checked. I keep it unchecked, however after patches or updates this option gets reset. I want to make a script that launches on start up so that the option to align to grid is always unchecked. How would I go about doing that?

Are you sure the correct rights are set on the profile folders so that the user is able to save the changes? Esspecially on the server...
