    ALL icons missing/blank (desktop, taskbar, explorer)


    Hi all,


    • - Had the laptop hooked up to the TV last night via HDMI
      - Unplugged, then closed lid - putting it to sleep
      - Turned on today, no icons whatsoever.


      - Tried restarting the laptop
      - Tried restarting 'explorer.exe'


    Any tips for getting them back? It's annoying the hell out of me!

    Thanks in advance!

    Also:
    When I open the explorer when uploading or downloading something, the icons are there..

    Here's a pic:

    Try opening an admin command prompt, copy and paste this in(make sure you have an internet connection when running it):

    fsutil resource setautoreset true c:\&fsutil usn deletejournal /d /n c:&Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc /scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase&pause

    Let it run through until it shows pause.
    Reboot.
    If it showed errors, run it again, and reboot, repeating this until no more errors are shown.

    Hi Cliff,

    Thanks for your response.

    I followed your instructions, and no errors seemed to be present.
    I've rebooted but am still in the same position :/

    Here's the command prompt log if you just wanted to check over anything: http://pastebin.com/1hZ4AQsK

    Cheers!

    Yeah it "looks like" your system is tip-top.

    Do you have the most current Windows 10 ISO for your machine, that you could mount in File Explorer and do a repair install?

    Hi Cliff,

    Thanks for your swift response.

    Unfortunately, I do not have a current ISO :/ - I downloaded and used the USB installation method, then formatted the USB...

    Go here and get it: Windows 10 ISO
    Then double click it, run set up, select to keep all program & files.

    If you have never done a repair install before or don't know how to do one, please read Brinks tutorial before doing anything: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    Hi Cliff,

    Thanks again for your quick reponse.

    My internet is on the shoddy side, so I'll download this overnight and will get back to you tomorrow.

    Cheers, Mix
