    similar... I have the task bar bar at the bottom also but none of my shortcuts can be seen. Only the windows, search and task view icons are visible on the left but none of those 3 works since the last update. And the icons for all my shortcuts are all black... it looks like there is nothing there but if you hover over them you eventually see the labels and then those invisible shortcuts do actually work still... problem happened after the last update.Click image for larger version.

    This is not the same as my problem, so you might want to make a seperate thread for it. My icons are still showing up, but some applications are not showing their icons:

    The leftmost blank file is Skype, the second is iTunes and the one on the right is Microsoft Office Word.

    Does anyone have a potential solution to this issue?

    I'm also having the same issue


    I'm having the same issue. My icons look like this:

    This is happening only for the following programs:
    1. All MS Office Professional Plus 2013 programs
    2. Skype
    3. Remote Desktop Manager

    If I unpin them while running, the icon comes back. If I subsequently pin them, they disappear again

    I've tried many different suggestions including rebuilding the icon cache.

    This is really unbelievable and pathetic.

    User Permission


    If you are wondering why your icons have gone missing, it's generally a permissions issue. I have seen a huge number of updated machines with this issue.

    C:\Users\Public\Public Desktop and C:\ProgramData are the two folders that need to be fixed, perhaps one more if the store icons are an issue.

    The Start Menu is under ProgramData, and the applications installed for all users have their icon stored in the Public Desktop.

    An easy fix is to grab the permission from a similar machine. If you export the permissions on a working machine you can then import them using icacls.

    The text file will look like this:

    PublicD:PAI(A;OICI;FA;;;BA)(A;OICIIO;FA;;;CO)(A;OICI;FA;;;SY)(A;OICIIO;0x1301ff;;;IU)(A;;0x1200af;;; IU)(A;OICIIO;0x1301ff;;;SU)(A;;0x1200af;;;SU)(A;OICIIO;0x1301ff;;;S-1-5-3)(A;;0x1200af;;;S-1-5-3)S:AI

    You don't need everything, just that first piece since the permission will be recursive.

    The command is icacls C:\ /restore programdata.txt on the machine you are trying to fix.

    On the working machine it's icacls C:\ProgramData /save programdata.txt /t /c

    Hope this works for you.
