As far as your icons automatically rearranging themselves for some reason, you might consider un-checking the "auto-arrange" option on your desktop "View" properties... if you currently have it checked. Also the "align to grid" should be unchecked, if you want to be able to place your desktop icons wherever you want to and never be bothered by Windows' interfering.
That way you are in complete control. You should never again see the mysterious symptom you describe... whatever the actual cause might be.
