Solved Nvidia messes up desktop icons placement

Every time i update my nvidia gpu drivers the setup messes up my desktop icon positions and doesn't return them to their original positions after the installation. This has occurred every single time i've updated my gpu drivers from the beginning of time. Is there way to prevent this?

My desktop is usually full with clutter because i always put the files which i frequently use there.

Is there any stable program that can save the grid layout and formulate the positions automatically from memory or a file?
