Control panel Icons Problem

#1
I have a minor problem with Control Panel icons and images within folders.
The problem is, that they do not appear in alphabetical order. e.g In Control Panel, User Accounts appears 1st in the list and accessibility Options appears last. I can click on arrange icons by name and everything will appear normal for a day or two, and then it reverts back. This also happens when opening up an images folder from a 3rd party program. e.g My Pictures Folder from Paint Shop Pro.
Windows XP Pro
any ideas?
Thnx

How to set the folders and make them stick
To make the folder settings stay, there are two methods,

A) One is to delete the two registry entries (after backing them up).
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\BagMRU]
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\Bags]

B) Another is to add the entry "BagMRU Size" and set it to a value greater than

400 that is the default

Go to:-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell

and add a DWORD called

BagMRU Size

and give it a value of

000003e8

Then go to :-

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam

make a DWORD called

BagMRU Size

and give it a value of

000003e8
