I have my computer hooked up to my TV. When I shut down/restart or switch my tv monitor from actual cable television back to computer, all the desktop icons keep moving. Anything I can do to correct this?

you can try ultramon. there is a setting that will allow you to save the positions of icons on your desktop

check the refresh rate on your TV. make sure it is 60hz.

This is happening because the resolution of the 2 displays are different. When you connect to the lower resolution one, it moves the icons to fit, and when you go back to the other, it saves the icon locations for you. I have not tried ultramon, that may or may not work for this. If you set the resolution of the PC when you use both screens to the same thing, your icons will sit put.
