Windows 7: Folder and file icons not appearing in menus

29 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
Folder and file icons not appearing in menus

I'm having a problem where icons for files and folders aren't displayed properly. All that is displayed when I try to do things in programs like Open... or (in the case of itunes) Add folder to Library... The icons are displayed as the default icon - the one that would be displayed if there was a corrupted shortcut. I'm posting a link to part of a screen shot from itunes. It seems like I'm having that problem in any program I use: itunes, Adobe Bridge, etc. I've already tried rebuilding the icon cache file by deleting IconCache.db and restarting. Can anyone help me? This problem doesn't seem to be impairing any functionality of my computer, but is rather annoying.
