Dual monitor setup defaults to wrong screen

Specs: Windows XP
Every time I log on to any Windows user account, my dual monitor setup shows up incorrectly (XP running Dualview mode). Usually, the taskbar shows up on the left screen (as it should), but my desktop icons are on the right screen, which also becomes the default screen for opening programs. I can fool the computer into swapping the screens and then switching them back again using the nVidia control panel (that puts the icons back on the left screen), but it's annoying to do that every time I sign on. Is there a way to fix it permanently? I have tried all four possible combinations of Dualview monitor configurations in the nVidia control panel.

I am running the following system:
HP xw8600 Workstation w/ Windows XP
2x Dell SP2309W monitors
nVidia Quadro FX 3700 GPU
