Windows 7: Desktop icon position issue with modified theme.

Desktop icon position issue with modified theme.

Well on boot now it forces a bunch of icons up one row now and to actually move them back you have to set the task bar to auto hide move them then unset that, then they stay where they're meant to be.

If you try moving them while the taskbar is normal they refuse to go there as if the taskbar is intersecting theme.

If nobody has an actual solution as to how to fix this does anyone know how to write a batch file at least that toggles the taskbar to autohide then tells actual multiple monitors to restore the icon order then turns off autohide taskbar?

Also would really love a solution though, thanks.

Desktop icon position
When using Windows XP I used a little program called "Icon Restore" which saved and restored the position of the desktop icons. This program does not work with Windows 7 - 64bit (32bit is supposed to be OK). Is there a way to either use the old program or get the same results in another way?
