    As you can see all the icons are missing or broken except for the ones on the start menu.
    Didn't really do anything before this, just played games.

    Hello draggehz and welcome to Ten Forums.

    If you have a restore point that was created prior to the icon issue it might correct the problem. If not you could try rebuilding the icon cache. I prefer Option Two using the command prompt.

    I have the same issue and it's now got two of my Win 10 pro PC's in the office. the 1st one I tried rebuild icon db, sfc /scannow and no luck. I just reinstalled the OS from scratch.
    Now that it has happened on a 2nd PC, I'm not sure what to do ???
    Anyone know what this is?
    Thank you
