As a self proclaimed wizened user you should know why hardware configs are helpful.

I'm experiencing this exact same problem as well. This is after a fresh install of Win7 x64 Ultimate on my laptop and installing all my programs. Can anyone help me here?

Thanks.

Hopefully you're hewing pretty close to these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

I gave the fix just above to force desktop icons to maintain their position once they're where you want them.

I'm not having problems with the position of the icons actually. I'm having problem when, upon startup, they refresh once and then back to normal. What could be the solution to this?

The problem has nothing to do with the IconCache.db rebuild or resize.
After a little work with the Windows 7 services the result is as follows:

If you do not use the Home Group you can disable the following services (after saving: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services):

Go to: System Services (services.msc);
search for: Computer Browser and DISABLE it;
search: Server and DISABLE it.

That's All folks!
Enjoy!
