Why are the desktop icons scattered?

I work with the IT department at my company and I have a user who logs into his computer, and says that his desktop icons are scattered all over his desktop everytime he logs in. He sorts them and moves them to where he would like them but sure enough when he logs out and logs back in, the icons are scattered... show more I work with the IT department at my company and I have a user who logs into his computer, and says that his desktop icons are scattered all over his desktop everytime he logs in. He sorts them and moves them to where he would like them but sure enough when he logs out and logs back in, the icons are scattered again.

Has anyone ever seen this before or heard of this? I am sure it is just a setting on the desktop but I have never heard of this before. Thanks.
