    Hey guys,

    Recently I installed Lion with a clean install (made a bootable disk) but after a week or two I've noticed strange things such as my stocks widget keeps resetting to defaults and my desktop icons keep rearranging. Also when I drag a folder onto the desktop, the color of the screen looks fragmented. There are also other small issues happening to such as the wallpaper will be changed to the new default "grey background apple has."

    Heres a screen shot of my desktop:

    Thanks for your help.

    That image is probably going to indicate a bad logic board.

    Lion is new, so there's the possibility of bugs in the graphics drivers. Try a known-good Snow Leopard install. See if you can get graphics glitches there, too.
