 windows xp desktop icons won't stay put

My Windows xp machine won't remember where the desktop
icons are placed after boot up. Seems to go into auto
arrange when booted up. If I position the icons where I
want them, log off and back on, the icons are right where
I put them, but, if I shut down and reboot, they revert to
auto arrange.
Any suggestions???

Hi

What items are checked if you right click on the Desktop and select Properties?

1.desktop icons won't stay put

I can no longer place icon where I want to on my desktop - 
 they won't move (this just happened recently and I
haven't installed any new programs).  I've already tried
the "arrange desktop" settings (unchecking auto arrange,
etc.) - I can arrange by name, type, etc. - but they are
all still lined up on the left hand side of the desktop -
I cannot move them where I want.  What can I do?
