Restart your machine. Let us know if it works.
Now the icons don't even show up correctly in the first place. They all start out blank, but they transform just as slowly as before.
There was supposed to be spaces in "Max Cached Icons"?
On my other Windows 7 system the icons all show correctly simultaneously with no delay, there are 5x as many icons on the desktop, and the HDD is an absolute mess on that PC (80% full and never defragged).
