I have a windows machine, and after every reboot the desktop resolution and desktop icon locations reset to a early point in time. I have tried the following possible solutions to no effect:

  • Updated the video drivers to the latest
  • Pressed F5 then rebooted
  • Changed the resolution in the registry and rebooted. Initially the resolution is correct, but a few seconds after logging in it changes to the wrong resolution.
    • upgraded from windows 7 to windows 8

Any suggestions?
