Icon images missing, description still there

I updated the Malwarebytes program and there must have been a glitch. Ever since then my desktop icon images do not show up. When I perform all the suggestions nothign helps. Ive gone back a few days to a restore point ... that didnt work. Im thinking it's a registry fault.

Icons work on my administrator login but I have a personal login that I use and it does not work.

Any suggestions?

thanks
