Windows 7: Missing Icons - NEED HELP

Missing Icons - NEED HELP

This has happened on a few of my programs, infact, so many of them.

I've taken a print screen of one of them just to show you what the settings are like.
The permissions and dialouge boxes are exactley the same on every program.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Did you delete the data in this location C:\Windows\Installer? This will cause Microsoft word and other programs (but no all programs) to loose their icons. Some programs will let you manually fix the icons and some wont.

I don't think I would have done that on purpose.
Although, I guess it's a possibilty.

Are you aware on how I could fix this issue?

Try to "rebuild your Icon cache". You can search this forums tutorial section (I am typing from mobile device, so its a bit difficult to give you the direct link).

You will get videos in Youtube too.

You may need to reboot, once again.

Well, I've had the same issue for some time now, I came here a while back seeking advice and rebuilding the icon cache was all that was recommended, so when that didn't work, I sort of gave up.
I guess I'm back haha.
