    Hi all,

    Have tried Icon Cache - Rebuild in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums with no luck.

    Does anyone have any other suggestion as this seems a very serious problem that has occurred.

    Thank you.

    Do a system restore. Pick a date BEFORE you resized desktop icons as your restore point.

    Systems restore did not work with the above error.

    Any other ideas?

    I have not encountered an anti-virus program that would prevent system restore from running.
    However, since you get that message, have you tried to disable whatever anti-virus program you have and run system restore again ?

    Hi all,

    Please disregard last post.

    I have disabled antivirus program and still get above problem.

    But this is not as serious as problem with icons indicated by my first post.

    Does anyone have any other suggestion as this seems a very serious problem that has occurred.

    Thank you.
