    I restored icons by simply renaming the IconCache.db to include the word old and restarted my laptop.

    Hello netmouse, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    That would work as well, but now you have an unneeded backup copy of your old corrupted icon cache taking up space on the HDD.

    Not a problem at all. The file is only 167 kb (so tiny) and you can delete it. Right?

    Correct, or use Option One in the tutorial to have it all done for you automatically. :)

    This was what I needed. However, there's no need to reboot the entire system. Running explorer.exe as the last step is all that's needed to reload the user shell.

    Hello Semicharm,

    Yeah, sometimes that's all that may be needed if you just needed to have the cache cleared instead of rebuilt. I just include restarting the PC to be safe since it is needed to have the new hidden IconCache.db file recreated. :)
