Windows 7: Icons and pictures will not show.

23 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Icons and pictures will not show.

My icons and pictures of some programs such as Rhapsody, X-Fire, the WoW start menu, and all pictures in Internet Explorer will not display. This was originally a problem in Windows Vista after having some .NET Framework troubles, and I figured it would fix itself in Windows 7, but it did not. I have fully updated my drivers, .NET Frameworks and what not, yet the problem still persists. I am not sure if this common or not, but it's really beginning to bug me. Here a screenshot of what is happening.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
