Windows 7: Icons not active. Just a style problem.

31 Mar 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Icons not active. Just a style problem.

Hi I'm a noob with first time post,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and I use Google Chrome for most web browsing sometimes Explorer.

The problem is that icons are not loading onto the start menu. I have to unpin the page then the icon shows up. Then I have to repin it back.

Also my steam has an icon issue. The start menu is somehow thinking it's the application for L4D2. So my steam shows up on the taskbar with the L4D2 icon but clearly shows it is the Steam application in Aeropeek. Steam was working fine before I formatted the HD and reinstalled W7U. I couldn't be bothered to wipe it all again for such a little more style in looks.

It's not a functional problem it is just a loss of points on style.

I was hoping others find similar problems so as to initiate an update for it

Like I said I am a noob and not only a noob to this forum but in many cases
