Fixed Taskbar Icon Placement

I've got some Icons that I want to pin to the taskbar (eg Exel & Libraries).

I want them to stay furthest left near the start button (just as they did in WIN XP fast launch area).

But, as I open other programs in WIN 7 these Icons move and others get inserted to their left. How can I stop this and emmulate the WIN XP fast launch toolbar behavior?

Thanks Airbot . . .

It worked like a charm.
I would have never figured that out without your advice.

If you have pinned items, other programs shouldn't wedge themselves in there, they usually appear on the right side of pinned items and running programs.

Multi-monitor - icon placement
I have a setup with three monitors using the one in the middle as the primary one. It seems that I can't place icons in the lowest row of the primary monitor, as they will snap and jump to the row above it. If there is another icon above it, this icons kinda gets in the way and prevents the problem...

Losing desktop icon placement.
Windows forgets my icon placement on the desktop when I restart the pc or exit some games. Some of of us have no icons on our desktop, some of us have 50.
