    I tried the .bat file association fix.

    It said the entry was successful.

    I went to download the Rebuild_Icon_Cache.bat and it came back again as
    Icon Cache - Rebuild-capture1.png



    The sfc /scannow said it found and fixed some damaged files, but the msconfig.exe icon is still generic,

    Icon Cache - Rebuild-capture3.png


    so it fixed something, just don't know what.
    I do not understand the log file so I have no idea. Plus it's late, and eyes crossing.

    Here is the log if you are bored and really feel like strumming thru massive amounts of script, but I am lost when it come to this. ONLY IF YOU NEED A CHALLENGE. NOT IMPORTANT, it is a file I never see, and the desktop shortcut icon works and looks fine. I just find this one absolutely baffling.

    Here is the zipped cbs log

    UPDATE.

    Re-started from scratch, did elevated command prompt of the rebuild_icon_cache steps,

    re-ran the sfc /scannow, and re-booted, and VOILA! All systems and icons seem to be back in place! You amaze me man!


    It was such a trivial, unimportant thing, but it had me perplexed.

    Thanks Brink, I guess I just can't pull one over on ya hey?


    I guess I missed a step first attempt or something.

    Al,

    I'm happy to hear that you got the icon issue sorted.

    I just noticed from your screenshot on the BAT fiile issue that something is renaming the .bat at the end with .download instead. My guess would be your antivirus program, or some IE8 add-on toolbar.

    We can start a new thread for the msconfig icon issue though to keep this one topic, and I'll try to help there.

    Hello Drugo,

    No need to, you can just run the BAT and click on RUN to approve running it after you download it. :)

    Hello Anon,

    It works in my 64-bit, and deletes the IconCache.db file. If you had the window open when you did the command, see if refreshing (F5) the window shows that the IconCache.db file has been deleted.

    Anon,

    Yes, that would just be doing OPTION THREE to manually delete the file instead. Be sure to restart the computer afterwards. :)
