Windows 7: Taskbar icons moving around randomly during a session

Taskbar icons moving around randomly during a session

Having a recent problem with icons in taskbar moving around (not staying where I slide them over) during a session. What I have tried is this: after "unlocking the taskbar" is unselected, I then move the icons in the order I desire, then "lock the taskbar" is selected. This fails to secure their new location. Anyone have an idea as this has just recently become a problem.

Check the setting - else they may move.

I use "Combine when taskbar is full" and my icons stay put.

Moving Desktop Icons to the Taskbar
I just got a Dell XPS laptop, x64, and, so far, I have no real issues with Windows 7. I like a clean desktop and, on my XP machines, moved the desktop icons with ease. With the new operating system, I've done that, too, but some icon cannot be moved in the traditional way. Is there a way to move My...
