Windows 7: Desktop icons rearranged after restarting pc

Desktop icons rearranged after restarting pc

I turned off my pc and went out. When I came back, my desktop icons had been rearranged. It looked like how the desktop icons get rearranged when you change resolutions or reinstall video drivers, however none of this happened. What else could it be that does this?
