Win7 64bit 1920x1080 scrambling v1.6.4

Hi, I run Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit with screen resolution of 1920x1080.  The icon size is set to small and auto arrange is unticked.  Occasionally Windows Explorer stops working or when I get a Nvidia driver update, resulting  in scrambling the desktop icons.  Using the latest v 1.6.4 the restore still places many icons in random places, often one column shifted down an icon and others moved to odd places.   Repeated restores from the same stored file results in different icon placements each time making matters worse.   Can the Author please look into what might be causing this bad flaw in the program.

I found a program called DESKTOP OK 64 bit whit works flawlessly.
I have looked at the saved files from both programs and found the desktop icon positions all correct for both.
The DESKTOP OK saved file has this format...
[1920x1080]
Computer=31,2
Recycle Bin=31,101
VideoReDo TVSuite V4=316,398
 
 
MIDO-OX version has this
;
; Desktop Restore: 1.6.4.036. UNICODE Layout File.
;
 
[Icon0001]
Legacy=0
XCoord=31
YCoord=2
Name=Computer
Path=::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
Monitor=0
[Icon0002]
Legacy=0
XCoord=31
YCoord=101
Name=Recycle Bin
Path=::{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
Monitor=0
[Icon0003]
Legacy=0
XCoord=316
YCoord=398
Name=VideoReDo TVSuite V4
Path=C:\Users\Public\Desktop\VideoReDo TVSuite V4.lnk
 
as you can see the DESKTOP OK just copies the raw infor from windows stored file where MIDI-OX version puts in extra info fields and different X / Y Coordinate format which must be reinterpreted to send back to Windows 7 64 bit.  Maybe the error is occurring in this process.  
**** I would like to use your desktop restore to get away from a stand alone program. It worked ok on Win 7 32 bit all the time. However with Win 7 pro 64 bit, small icons and 1920x1024 NVIDEA screen a restore at ANY TIME, even with a non scrambled desktop with scramble the desktop.
 
Hoping this sheds an obvious solution for the Author.

I use a monitor with that same resolution (1920 x 1080) and small Icons (32 x 32).  When I go to save, it names the layout, "Layout 1920 x 1080 (32)".  Is it the same in your case?
 
Is it possible that you did not perform a Save after adding some icons? That is the only time when I see icons move on successive Restores.  The next version of Desktop Restore will have the ability to highlight unmatched icons (icons that have yet to be "saved" in a layout).
