    You don't have to restart after using Icon Cache Rebuild. Mine disappeared along with my taskbar and nothing was happening, so I hit ctrl+alt+del, then start task manager. Next click "File" then "New Task (Run) and type: explorer.exe then click ok. All my icons were restored.

    Hello Michaell, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

    Restarting the computer is required to have the deleted %localappdata%\IconCache.db file recreated.

    Thank you- it fixed mine


    Thank you for the icon rebuild instructions.

    I too was suffering from a never ending scan in Windows Explorer and icons with no pictures after I did a Windows update. Following the manual instructions posted solved my issue.

    Hello f23948, :)

    That is normal for those few .db files, and nothing to worry about.

    Did rebuilding the icon cache and restarting the PC help with your icon issue?
