Yea well, very cool but not a solution.
I have exactly same situation.
And what you are proposing is basically "forget your dream" kind of option which is opposite of what the topic is about.

Hello kry666, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You have an issue with your shortcut arrow overlay on the icon instead of with the icon cache. You can use an option in the tutorial below to restore the default shortcut arrow overlay to fix this for you.
