I think I'll develop a tolerance for the little quirks of my existing Windows 7 rather than reinstall everything. Thanks for the education--it's much appreciated and I'll keep in on the back burner in case things deteriorate!

Downloading and running the Rebuild_Icon_Cache.bat solved the problem for me.
Thanks

Awesome! Thank you very much for the quick fix! I manually rebuilt the cache and now I have my icons back. You have a ton of good tutorials on here and this is definitely one of them!
