Not sure what you had in mind, so I just played around a bit. Give me some more details if you want me to change it.

I'm pretty sure it's just the cache's acting up, not 100% sure why it happens. it's like there's some stored in the actual memory or something when deleting/clearing the cache files. (It's been reported before that this problem happens but it seems very random and sparse. )

Just incase you don't know, the small icons (upto 32x32 pixels i think) are stored in the icon cache (which you've cleared) but the larger icons are stored in the thumbnail cache which can be cleared via running 'disk cleanup' for your system drive and just selecting 'Thumbnail Cache'.
I did disk cleanup it's still the same. If I add something to the new folder on the desktop it changes to a normal folder icon, then delete it it's a normal folder icon in the recycle bin.

Just incase you don't know, the small icons (upto 32x32 pixels i think) are stored in the icon cache (which you've cleared) but the larger icons are stored in the thumbnail cache which can be cleared via running 'disk cleanup' for your system drive and just selecting 'Thumbnail Cache'.
I did disk cleanup it's still the same. If I add something to the new folder on the desktop it changes to a normal folder icon, then delete it it's a normal folder icon in the recycle bin.
Will I got the normal folder icon back I found 2 desktop folders in Jerry folder from the start menu not C/user/jerry folder, 1 in the properties said C/Jerry/Desktop , the other said C/User/Jerry/Saved/Games/Desktop, if I delete it I get a error when I try to make a new folder(the only options in right click-new is just folder nothing more)I put it back. So I started in safe mode & deleted it restarted & the normal folder icon is back, but still 2 desktop folders in Jerry.
It works just fine so I will leave it.

or this.

Thanks for the quick reply guys! What I'm looking for is more of the crest itself without the coloured circle. It'd look transparent. Hovering and clicking the crest itself would have the glow on it. Like with the default start button the Windows panel each glow. If that makes sense xD

Did you run the Uninstall Cleanup batch file provided in the pack?
Here incase you don't have it;

Yes. Here what I have now from my last post:

Will I got the normal folder icon back I found 2 desktop folders in Jerry folder from the start menu not C/user/Jerry folder, 1 in the properties said C/Jerry/Desktop , the other said C/User/Jerry/Saved/Games/Desktop, if I delete it I get a error when I try to make a new folder(the only options in right click-new is just folder nothing more)I put it back. So I started in safe mode & deleted it restarted & the normal folder icon is back, but still 2 desktop folders in Jerry.
It works just fine so I will leave it.

Unless you know a fix? Thank You Jerry
