Windows 7: Weird icons

16 Jun 2009   #1

Weird icons

I just installed WIndows 7 RC1 yesterday, and my icons are corrupted somehow now. I was installing RealPlayer before the corruption, and the icons are purplish after it. I tried restarting, but it did not help.

Here are screen shots.

I tried googling, and it seems like this isn't a common problem. Is the only way to solve it is through a reinstallation?Thanks guise.

Never seen that one before, you could try deleting the icon cache and reboot to see if that fixes it or maybe try a repair install, just run the ISO setup again and choose upgrade and it will reinstall without you having to install all your apps again.
