    Icons gone, labels still there


    Today, I started up my computer and, for some reason, all of the icons for my applications, folders, and all other files were missing, but the names were still there. I also noticed that the icons for my applications in the taskbar were replaced with generic .exe icons.

    The same thing applies to my folders.

    As I continued to use my computer, I found that all of the icons would appear when downloading a file from the internet or attaching a file to an email.

    I have restarted my computer several times, restarted explorer.exe, and rebuilt my icon cache, but nothing has happened. This is really annoying and I hope there is an easy fix for it.

    Thanks. :)
