    Is there a way to 'lock' my desktop shortcut icons where I want them to be rather than having them in the standard setup on startup? I tried that little "Lock Web Items on Desktop" opten you get via the right click menus, but all that did was mess up my Webshots Wallpaper. :(

    Think this is what you want, if you have xp do this, >right click on desktop>select arrange icons>uncheck auto arrange.

    that should do it,,,i hope :)

    good luck...rob
