    Icons Turn Blank Until Renaming

    I have this issue on occasion with various .exe files. Sometimes after installing a program an exe's icon will turn into a blank page. The only way to get it's icon to return is to rename the file and the icon will return. Has anyone figured out how to stop this from happening or fix the exe's?

    You need to rebuild the icon Cache, along with run sfc /scannow and run Dism to fix any other issues. Usually happens after MSI is running and the installer is handing the operation back to Explorer.exe.
