The 64 bit shell messes up a lot of the icon saver programs. I wrote one years ago but since it's a 32 bit shell extension it doesn't work on 64 bit. I would try the freeware sites. Just search on Desktop Icon Restore or something of that nature.
I got fed up. My desktop has no icons at all. I use RocketDock and some other launchers and stacks. The only time I have an icon on the desktop is if I save a file there for a few minutes. It's gone pretty quickly.
I'm done fighting Auto Arrange!!
download.com or softpedia should have some free ones. Just make sure they are written for 64 bit.
