comment Anomalous computer icon overlay
Hmm, could be, thanks. This is the first reply anywhere we've gotten on the problem. Hopefully, next time it happens, I'll be able to provide during/after pictures.

Hmm, not sure I got the right image. Might have to wait for them to come back. The previous overlay looked like four linked monitors.

Ah; second information. I'm doing tech support for family, BTW. "They tend to move in rows and collumns", so while they move arbitarily, they tend to move as a group.

Right, sorry. Windows XP. Not sure what you mean by "desktop icon program". "Align to grid" and "Show desktop icons". I'll get something up. "Moving arbitrarily and without pattern" is the best description. The're kept all on the left side of the screen, where XP likes to put them. However, they will arbitrarily be found elsewhere on the screen in no discernable pattern.

Nope; they're just in different locations. Various numbers, different places.
