Desktop icons rearranging themselves


H

Folks,

I was working this afternoon, and suddenly, for no apparent reason, the
icons on my desktop began to align themselves as if I had them set to Auto
Arrange (I don't). I use a little utility called WinTidy to store the layout
of my icons, so I can easily restore them to their "proper" positions, but
every time I reboot, or even Refresh from the right-click menu, they all go
back to the left-hand side of the screen.

Auto Arrange, as I mentioned before, is not checked; neither is Align to
Grid.

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Hi hs,

Apparently Wintidy isn't compatible with SP2.

Well, it hasn't been a problem for the past few years. As I said, this just
started this afternoon, and it happens whether WinTidy happens to be running
or not.
