Windows 7: Desktop Icon Graphics Missing

Looking at the file size of some Icons, it is not surprising that Overflows can occur - for example the Icon for the Samsung KiesLite shortcut has a file size of 504Kb !!! Even the basic windows 'Folder' Icon is just over 52Kb and the AVG Icon is just short of 84Kb. Others of course are quite small - only a few Kb. It would seem that a default size of 500Kb for the 'IconCache.db' file is a little on the mean side !!

I don't know what I'm doing wrong but when I follow this I can't find icon cache.

Code:
"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MaxCachedIcons
Just curious. Wanted to see what mind was set at.

If you cannot see that entry, then IconCache.db file size is set to the default size of 500Kb. It can be set to a larger limit by adding the new key as described above and setting its value to say 1024 (1Mb) or 2048 (2Mb) or 4096 (4Mb) etc.
