    Icons missing their image on Windows Explorer


    Hello, everyone.

    I'm with a problem on my Windows 10, which is the following: some icons when searched by Windows Explorer does not show their default image. To lighten, here some images that shows the problem.

    Weird is that some programs do not show this problem:

    Another thing is that the programs that do not show their default image when searched, show their image if fixed on start menu:

    I've already tried to uninstall, reinstall the programs and rebuild the ImageCache.db but without sucess.

    If anyone knows anything about this and can lighten my head, i would be grateful.

    Thanks in advance

    This might be the imagres.dll. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to give you the file from my computer, but try a sfc /scannow in admin command prompt (windows button+x then press a).

    Tried what you suggested but whitout success, i deleted manually the imageres.dll, then i runned the sfc/scannow that repaired the files, but the problem wasn't fixed.

    But, thank you anyway.

    Have you tried restarting explorer.exe? Open task manager, go to the processes tab, click on explorer.exe and end it. Then go to file in the top right and click run. In the box that pops up put explorer.exe and press enter.

    This was one of the first things i've tried and multiple times, cause most solutions i tried required restarting explorer.exe

Solved Want jpg icons to show image thumbnails instead of generic icons
Hi: Since updating to Windows 10, whenever I open file folders to view jpgs, the files' thumbnails are a generic blue mountain icon instead of thumbnails of the images themselves. How do I get the icons to go back to being thumbnail images again?...
