Windows 7: Win 7 x64, Icons refresh on every boot

Win 7 x64, Icons refresh on every boot

I can't seem to keep my desktop icons from refreshing on EVERY bootup. I tried all the reg hacks for Max Cached Icons such as

Windows 7 - Increase Icon Cache Size*|*MyTechSupport.ca


It's not a big deal, I don't think this should be happening.

I use Dexpot, a multi desktop manager, but I don't think it's causing this.

Hi.

Dexpot i never heard of till now. Does run at startup?

May be a conflict somewhere. I saw one comment about misaligned icons on another forum.

cheers

Try to tick box in folder options "Always show icons, never miniatures"
This might help! or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer add "Max Cached Icons" at value 4096. One of these options solved issue for me.

Sorry I missed this the last time around.

To have desktop icons maintain their position rightclick a blank area of the desktop to Refresh.
