    Hi bikeit.

    Any chance Auto arrange Icons is enabled?

    Right click clear area desktop, view, Auto arrange icons.

    If it is disabled, no check mark, I would enable, place a check mark, then restart and disable. Hopefully changing state will enforce your settings.

    bikeit,
    could you also check Reliability history, if there are any system problems (restart, instead of wake from sleep, or similar). It's much easier to see problems in there, than in Event viewer..

    Problems with graphic drivers could also lead to such problems.

    Click on Start (bottom left corner) and start typing reliability - it should show in Search box - click on it. We can check on drivers later..

    Here are tutorials for posting screenshots

    Basically, press WIN+Shift+S keys together and cross will appear. Mark the area to copy, deselect that A/A mark in top right corner of Reply box and press Ctrl+v
