    Rebooted the computer and all my desktop icons turned white


    I rebooted the computer and when I got my desktop back all the cons for third party apps are the default white icon as you can see in my screenshot.

    I have tried re-building the icon cache by following the instructions on the forum Icon Cache - Rebuild

    I can rebuild from a 3 day old image backup but I don't want to have to do that! Anyone got any more tips for trying to work it out - I tried to change one or two manually using the properties/change icon but that did not stay changed for some reason.

    Have you tried doing a system restore to a point before you started having these problems??

    If you don`t get it fixed, you could PM our member Brink, he is a genius at fixing these types of problems.

    I was going to tell you to rebuild the icon cache, but you`ve already tried that.

    Thanks guys - Will PM Brink if doing a system restore doesn't work! Didn't realise I could use System Restore!

    *EDIT* System Restore worked thanks once I disabled my anti-virus!
