Yeah, I know it sounds really sad, but it bothers me the way my icons are all jumbled up... Is it possible to re-arrange all my icons and have them lined up the way I want them? I COULD close everything down, then start them up again in the "right" order, but that's just TOO sad... Any bright ideas?

Okay, here's the thing, I have a bunch of icons down there:

AIM, ICQ and MSN Messenger
Printer and scanner access programs
Norton Antivirus
Winamp
Remote Selector
ClipTray

and I want to be able to arrange it so that all the messaging icons are together, Winamp and Remote Selector are together, and the printer and scanner icon are next to each other. Yeah, I KNOW it's very, VERY sad being concerned about the way that my icons are arranged, but I'm very particular about my icons... it bugs me when they're all jumbled up like they are

ONE THING you could do is to leave the messenger services off of the startup ... and create a shortcut (on quicklaunch) that will run all three messengers so that at least they will be together.
