Corrupted icons...again!

Oh, I hate computers!! For no apparent reason most of my desktop icons are corrupted again, (see attached). I've done the delete and rebuild icon cache bit as per Brink's tutorial, no luck, did a system restore and was OK for a while then pooped itself again. Tried the rebuild again, nup! tried a system restore again and now it tells me it can't do it. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr, refer to first statement!! Any clues lads and lasses??

Hello Harry,

It appears that the issue is with your shortcut arrow overlay icon instead. You might see if using the tutorial below to restore it may be able to help.
