Norton 360 desktop icon

The icon for Norton 360 will NOT stay where it is placed on the desktop.  Every time the pc restarts the icon defaults to the top left hand side.  This has been going on for months.  Can't it be fixed?  I know it's nothing significant but it the ONLY icon on my desktop that does it!!!!  Come on guys, get it fixed!!

Hello MilesRight. On your desktop, right mouse click to pull up the context menu shown below. If you see "Auto arrange icons" checked uncheck it then select "Align icons to grid". All my machines are set this way, I do not have icons moving around unless I manually do so.

Re: Norton 360 desktop icon

Thanks for a quick response.

Firstly it's a left mouse click.

Not withstanding that I have set my desktop to 'align icons to grid' several times and even after resetting it now the icon migrates to the position of 3 icons down to four in from the left, every time on restart.  My default position is 2 icons up from the bottom and seven in from the left.  It just WILL NOT stay there!

I've never "left clicked" on the desktop area and opened a context menu. Unless of course, if a user has the mouse buttons switched in settings that would be the case for a left mouse button subing for a right click.
