Windows 7: My Recycle Bin Icon Disappeared - But Only In Dialog Boxes...

My Recycle Bin Icon Disappeared - But Only In Dialog Boxes...

I recently noticed that something strange had happened to my delete file dialog box - the recycle bin icon had been replaced... I've attached a picture of it. My first thought was that the icon file had been deleted, but no other icons are missing, and the recycle bin on my desktop still looks fine - I tried resetting the icon cache to no avail. This isn't really a problem per se, it just piqued my interest. It started right after installing SP1, but rolling back didn't change anything. Anybody have a clue why this happened, or maybe even know how to fix it?

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Try rebuilding your icon cache:

Thanks for the suggestion, but I've already tried that. Like I said, it's no big issue, but I really hate when I can't figure something out!

How recent? If it is very recent, you could try to restore a system restore point - that might bring it back.
