    Hi to everyone & Hi @ THROOPER!

    I am missing some icon thumbnail images.

    Vaio SZ1VP laptop, Win 7 / Office 2007 / Bitedfender

    Recently:
    - Fixed an Infineon/TPM driver problem - icon images still correctly displayed.
    - Followed "blackviper" web page tuning advice to reduce active services - icon images still correctly displayed.
    - Followed "blackviper" web page tuning advice to increase PC speed (Win7) for "best performance/best appearance". Amongst other tweaks I set classic windows' basic UI.

    Problem started when I reverted to basic Win7 UI.

    I already tried many forum solutions (including a few from this forum, deleting cache, reg modifications, MS file check/fix which took 30 minutes, right click on icon, properties, etc - but no option to change icon) etc... but none worked.

    What does work is:
    Open the file which has the missing thumbnail image and save it with a different name - icon's thumbnail image is restored!

    Still can't work out a solution for programs' icons missing thumbnail images. Toolbar Outlook and Skype icons still missing correct thumbnail image but Firefox icon image is correctly displayed.

    Throoper helped solve a case: ( http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/1024674-missing-shortcut-icons-pictures.html ) by offering 2 links & delete cache db.

    I would like to try that, if Throoper has links for Win 7. Any other help/support greatly appreciated.

    TIA.
