Windows 7: Foobar icon cache

Foobar icon cache

My right click menu for foobar is missing icons in the tasks section. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling foobar and rebuilding icon cache, neither have worked.

It looks like it may just be a jump list issue. You can clear the jump list items and see if they are recreated correctly.

To clear Jump List recent history

To erase individual items:

Open the jump list for Foobar> Right click any Recent or Frequent item> Click Remove from this list

To erase all jump list items:

Right click the taskbar and then click Properties> In the dialog box that appears Click the Start Menu tab> Uncheck the box for Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar> Click Apply and ALL jump list recent history will be erased.

If you have items you want to save before deleting all:

Click on the Pin button next to any jump list recent history item

To reenable jump list history> Recheck the box and Click OK. Once you’ve erased the history, re-enabling it will not bring back old items.

Suggest running CCleaner after disable and delete. Wouldn't hurt to delete icon cache and thumbnail cache

Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset

If using CCleaner for the first time, be sure to uncheck cookies and anything else you don't want to clean. I hope this helps. A Guy

You might try this, it offers other features you might like, even if it doesn't fix the icon problem:

Icon Cache Issues
On my previous installation of Windows 7, I frequently got a corrupt icon cache. The shortcut icon which I had removed from the icons would get replaced by a black box. Clearing the cache would fix it but eventually it'd happen again. Now, on b7600, I'm having a similar issue. For some...
