Windows 7: Problems with Desktop Icons in Windows 7 (Damaged Icon Cache perhaps?)

Problems with Desktop Icons in Windows 7 (Damaged Icon Cache perhaps?)

For some reason recently the desktop icons keep changing every time I restart my laptop.

I set them up how I like them (under right click, view) on small icons, but when I restart they automatically set themselves to medium icons. I was wondering why this is happening and what I can do to stop it happening?

I've uploaded pictures to show what the problem is.

Also, it had nothing to do with the Auto Arrange Icons option being ticked, as you can see from the images above.

I've been told that the Icon Cache might be damaged. I have tried to repair it with the help I read online, but what I did didnít do anything.
