Windows 7: Corrupt iconcache.db?

28 Sep 2010   #11

64-bit Windows 10 Pro


The single icon reference in the tutorial is just if the shortcut's source was moved or deleted. Rebuilding the icon cache wouldn't help in that case. Only recreating the shortcut directly from the source would instead. That's all.

Nope, you would use the command exactly as in the tutorial instead. Using Option One in the tutorial will make it a lot easier to rebuild the cache though. Let's see how it does after rebuilding the icon cache before we suggest anything else though to hopefully keep it simple.
