    I cant move icons on my desktop onto the right 2 columns for some reason. I try to move them, and they just dont go anywhere, but I can move them anywhere else. How do I fix this?

    There is nothing that states anything close to that when I right-click. But randomly it decided to go away. Thanks peat.

    @orcutt, You're running Windows XP right?

    I can't believe you couldn't look a bit more than the provided help. Right click your desktop>Arrange Icons By>Align to Grid.

    Haha crap. Sorry about that, I am a total idiot sometimes. And I figured it out. It is because a was having a window set as "docked" to the right side. This pushed all icons on the right side, over to the left side of the docked window. And everytime I would open the window, it would do that. Thanks for your help everyone, sorry I had such a stupid question.
