Rearranged Windows Desktop Rearranged Windows Desktop

I had to turn the computer off yesterday because of a screwup by AOL, and when I booted back up all of the icons were back in their original format - stacked on the left side of the screen. I moved them to the the new format, using the right click technique, but they immediately revert back to their original location. What am I leaving out of the process?

Right-click anywhere on the background of your Windows Desktop (the standard control screen with all the icons), go to "Arrange Icons", and unclick "Autoarrange". Once unclicked, it should stay unclicked. I don't know why it reset itself. Anyway, with that item unclicked, you can rearrange the icons any way you want.
