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?
