Hi,

Are they available in the "Add remove programs" page in Control Panel > Programs?

Hi

If like Orbital Shark said they are still in your "Add remove programs" page in Control Panel > Programs? page it looks more like an icon issue.You could try this Icon Cache - Rebuild

I had this issue with one (just one, though) of my icons a few days ago; the only difference being that I just had the 'blank page' icon as shown in ash30000's 2nd post. I 'fixed' it by recreating the shortcut (delete the one with no icon, then make a new one).

I would try a system restore to before you had this problem or before you edited the registry to see if that puts your icons back System Restore

This method usually helps me, unless it is more than a few programs.
