    All my Icons/shortcuts Are Blank


    for some reason all my Icons for everything but folders have gone blank I can't seem to get them back. As well as all my file and program associations have eather reset and ask me what programs I want to use a default and when I reassign them the next time I go to open a file of the same type the association seems to dissapear again and ask what progam I want to use again... This seemed to happen after Windows 10 auto updated last...

    Not sure what happened...

    See pic below of my desktop (note the Virtual DJ icon I just istalled that not 10 mins ago and it is blank as well) and windows explorer with blank 'page' icons but if I use the Open file dialouge page in Firefox or Chrome the icons show up....
