    Using Windows XP Home SP3

    Among the buttons in my Desktop popup menu (mouse 3) are these:

    Save Desktop Icon Layout
    Restore Desktop Icon Layout

    How can I remove the buttons and the application they run?

    keepplugging, It looks like you may have installed Icon Restore at one time as it puts those 2 items in the desktop right click context menu. Check out the link below which also has a "Uinstall Icon Restore" tool at the bottom of the page which you can download and run. I'd create a new System Restore Point prior to running it.

    Context Menu Editor 1.0 is also Free and may get the job done.

    Thanks! I couldn't remember which icon saver I installed. It's gone now.
    Also, Icon Restore never worked. Whenever Windows jumbled my icons, clicking on Restore did nothing.
