Hello,
my Desktop icons became blank or ‘white paper’ icon, where supposedly the icons should be colorful and customized in style and color. It’s as if the icon for the shortcut has been removed or unassigned, and been replaced with default blank icon in white.


Plz take a look to this snap to see how icons appears [IMG]http://i564.photobucket.com/albums/ss90/bhavintandel/desktopiconproblem.png[/IMG]

Plz give me the solution to fix my icons problem.

Using windows7 O.S

Thankx/Regards

My solution :
After trying most of what was recommended (system restore, registry edits, rebuilding iconcache.deb in several ways) none of which worked, I finally got my icons back !!!
Go here: http://www.stardock.com/products/iconpackager/
and get the trial version of IconPackager, install it, use it to switch to any icon package, then switch back (if you want to) the standard windows icons.
And voilà... all icons back.
Best regards !

Thank you so much, this worked! ^_^
doesn't work for me :/ I tried everything including registry edits, rebuilding iconcache.deb and the icon changer but problem still persists :/
This was a great help and solved my ongoing problem of many months. It was such a relief that I bought the program (only $9.99) rather than just use the trial. I thought this the fair thing to do in the circumstances. Thanks to all
