Hi,

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help. This problem affects only one user account on my PC, the other accounts are unaffected. If you look at the attached jpeg, I've circled the IE, Show Desktop, Textpad and other icons which have not been found. The programs all work OK, it's just a minor annoyance that the icons are not displayed. These icons work OK for the other user accounts. Any ideas on how to get the icons working for this user? I'm running Windows XP SP2.

Thanks again,

BurnleyBoy

BurnleyBoy, You could also try starting your computer in SAFE mode then restart it in Normal mode which will rebuild the iconcache.db file and may correct the problem.

Thanks Techychic and Tufenuf for your replies.

Tufenuf, I tried booting into Safe Mode, in Safe Mode the icons were all displayed correctly but unfortunately they were still broken when I booted normally.

Techychic, I tried the repair icons feature in TweakUI and it worked! :) Thanks! That is a great little program.

Thanks for your help in solving this little problem! (y)
