Windows 7: icon image error does not appear correctly

icon image error does not appear correctly

Hello everyone

I formatted and installed win seven. Slow process because I proceeded via USB so it would take a lifetime to load different screens.

I use Acronis True Image to make a image of C. The program creates shortcuts on my desktop and everything looks good.
Then I install other software utilities (ccleaner,teracopy,chrome,firefox,winrar,java,flash,vlc,7zip,........) with different icons on the desktop (22) using and all desktop links work correctly.

I Istall then EVGA precision to adjust the 8800GT video card fan and this link appears correctly on the desktop.
Since I have 20 shortcut icons on the desktop, I put them in a folder on my desktop.
I cut and paste the links in that folder and see that the image of the link EVGA precision image disappears giving generic application with links on white background.

I carry everything on my desktop and first all the links reappear and then disappear.
I go in all the programs start menu icon and discover that there is a generic white background icone also here. However everything works fine it is only a image icone problem. I go into the folder where EVGA precision.exe is and also there a white background image apperas. I unistall EVGA precision and now icone of true image is wrong icon but only for the links on the desktop. I take off Acronis True Image from PC and is now the icone of Glary Utilities is wrong.

Now I had already tried to repair the registry with Glary Utilities but cleaner and with no effect. I then followed guides to remove the cache file icons and it is no effect.

I have used avira antivirus so I do not think it is a virus.

But what does It happen?

Even reformatting and reinstall all I have the same problem.

SEVEN is wrong?


On another windows seven machine I have trie to install only evga precision 1.96 software but the icon appear broken only if I use medium or great icone.

The windows copy is the same.
