Hi there,

Give this tutorial a read: Default File Type Associations - Restore

Let me know if that's helpful at all.

Cheers,

I've had similar problems with Icons in W7 using stuff like StandAlone Stacks and 7Stacks. Seems like there's always one "blank page" icon in the list of programs. If I set it to a custom icon, that one is "fixed" but then a different one comes up blank. I don't have this in Vista64 using the same programs.

Try MS Knowledge Base or Windows Annoyances.

You could try to rebuild the icon cache used by windows. The location of the cache file is hidden so you need to unhide it... Open Windows Explorer, click organize, then select Folder and search options > Views tab then select show Hidden files and folders. Next go to the C:\Users\"your user name"\AppData\Local folder and delete the hidden file called IconCache.db and reboot. Windows will rebuild the icon cache.

Go back an rehide the folder when done.

Find the registry key "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\ShellEx\IconHandler" and delete it.

Deleting IconCache.db and key in path HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\FirefoxHTML\ShellEx\IconHandler didn't fix my problem. I think I must edit something connected with office 2007 because it made my problem.

  1. Open RegEdit.
  2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\FirefoxHTML.
  3. Delete the ShellEx\IconHandler registry key entry.
  4. Close RegEdit.
  5. Delete the iconcache.db file.
  6. Reboot.

I think it's a Seven bug. I tried all the delete cache tricks and nothing made any difference.

Win95 or Win98, I forget which, used to do the same thing. The dreaded blank page icon. We're back full circle.
