evry time I restart my computer or put a cd in it the icons change order on
my desktop. I have them custom set, but it continues to convert back to auto
arrange. why is it doing this and how can I prevent it. I have to rearrange
them all the time. Thanks

Then click "align to grid" and "show desktop items"

Once you follow the other directions go to Kelly's site:
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm
Line 188: Add Save & Restore Desktop Layout to Menu

This edit will add two entries to the menu when right clicking on a
blank area of the desktop: Save Desktop Icon Layout and Restore Desktop
Icon Layout.

See the top of the page for info on running the edit.
