Your comment and experience of "This does not happen everytime I power up, only sporadically." makes such a problem hard to resolve.

For login items, check your Accounts System Prefs for what login items are listed.

Maybe just leave your Mac running and set your Energy System Prefs to something that suits you, and save all the startups that seems to cause your problem. Computers don't really like to be continually shut down and rebooted.

I don't know why one's desktop icons sometimes move to new locations and I used to have the same problem occasionally with the early OS X versions.

If I recall, there is/was a utility that remembered all your icon placement settings but I can't recall its name. Sorry. But obviously created for those who suffer the unwanted icon moving whatever causes it.
