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
