XP desktop icons keep rearranging after reboot
« on: August 11, 2014, 10:10:43 AM »
I was hoping your product would fix the problem I've got with
my old XP SP3 machine.

Everytime I reboot, the desktop icons keep rearranging.  They
move to the extreme left of the desktop and fill the screen from
top to bottom, in a haphazard order, not at all like I had things
set.

I ran your product, and still the problem is not fixed.

Is there a fix?

The sort order of the desktop icons are stored int he registry, my program doesnt mess with that registry key as it also saves the icons locations, if I messed with that I would have some ticked off users lol

Did you right click on the desktop and on the menu go to view and then see if there is a check on auto arrange icons?
