    Some desktop Icons are messed up, even some in the start menu are. They show a blank white window with a blue title bar. I can right click and select properties and it shows the correct icon there.

    I've tried refreshing the desktop, I've tried shutting down completely, I've tried restarting...

    What gives?

    :) If you don't already have it, install TweakUI. Run it and choose the option to repair icons located under the repair section.


    Good luck.

    I get that error.

    I used to have it, don't know where it went to, maybe I uninstalled it. But anyway, thats what I get when I double click the install file.

    EDIT: I did some searching and found that I have it already, but why is that error showing up?

    EDIT #2: Repair worked, THANKS!

    Uninstall any previous version you find then reinstall a new copy.
