I woke up this morning to find all icons missing from task bar, desktop and file explorer. i have tried deleting my iconcache.db so another can be created however it said my iconcache had already been deleted. (Pictures attached!)

Thanks in advance!Helpme1.PNG Helpme2.PNG

I have been trying to trouble shoot the issue and while doing this i tried to create another account on this computer to see if it was system-wide or account wide. I made the account successfully but can not log in to this. Im assuming this problem is much more than a 'icons missing'. im thinking about resetting my computer but im not 100% that it will fix it.
