    Hi all.
    Bit of a strange one here. I have been trying to brighten up my desktop so I have placed a couple of little GIF animations on there and my favorite web page. After placing them as I wanted and resizing the web page to about a quarter of my desktop and showing the bit I wanted to see I was chuffed with the result.

    All I had to do then was lock them to the desktop. Thats where the problem came. As soon as I checked the "Lock Desktop Items" box and pressed "Apply" both the GIFs moved to a different place and the web page grew to nearly the whole desktop.

    I have tried it several times and always the same results.

    Any idea's anyone

    Thanks in advance.
