Windows 7 Icons sticking to each other?

Hello! I have been trying to get the icons on Windows 7 to not stick to themselves on the left side of the desktop. I have looked through the customization and Personalization settings, but cant figure it out. Are they supposed to stay this way? Please help! Thank you!
