man, having a kid is really demanding! look how few posts I've made lately! and its been two days since I was last on here! :) but hey, I'M LOVING IT :D

anyway... I'm running two screens on Win XP Pro, and all is working well, except that no icons will stay on the secondary desktop after a restart. I've turned auto-align off and on, Lock items on desktop off and on, and whatever other options are there I've tried; they just won't stay on the secondary desktop. Any suggestions? I know that they should stay on the other desktop, as I've used a dual screen setup before, with certain icons on the second screen's desktop... mind you, that was Win2k, and this is XP, so that could be the problem.

I did insist :) thanks godfather - the fix was for Win 98, but I've given it a go, and now am going to test it out :) I'll let you know if it works.

I won't :D

You'd think they would have remembered this bug when they released Win XP... but no :)

experience is what you get when you make a mistake a multitude of times....
