    Just thought I'd pop in and mention that I haven't forgotten about the script. In fact it's already done. I just need to get it running consistently so it's easy for anyone to use (including error messages and so on).

    Anyway, I know no one is sitting and waiting for it but I just wanted to let you know.

    Hi there, any news on this script? Have you heard of this problem re-occuring after using your solution? I tried your solution and it did work but now other similar issues plague me.

    It didn't work perfectly for me with Adobe Acrobat Professional. The icon wasn't where it belonged. I hunted it down, put it in the Appdata cache and then had to right click the icon on the start menu, select properties, find where you can change the icon and then direct it to the right icon. Now it works.

    Solved Icon went missing in Windows 7 ?

    Hi ,
    All my Icons had dissapeared , no single one left to trace in my pc . Well , this is wat i did and it worked perfectly for me but you need to own the W7 installation dvd .
    Just load it and select the upgrade option . Windows does the rest .

    Sinc a week or so almost all my icons went to blank icon.

    I have tried every option mentioned in this topic with no effect:

    • Reapair from boot menu
    • Upgrade from Windows install disk
    • Changing the icon

    Some of my icons are still present. One thing I know that icons from shell32.dll (or what is the name of the win default icon gallery) are good, as well as the office icons.

    Anyone have a tip?

    I tried system restore too with no success. If there are no more sugegstions, then I must reinstall the whole win7...
