    Icon cache keep rebuilding itself W10 Pro 64 Bits

    Hi guys, it's since CU update (fresh install) i have a issue with Icons cache.. It keeps rebuilding itself ! like every 2 reboot, when i go in a folder where's a lot of different type of files exe/jpg/bat/rar.... like my "download folder" all icons are blank then change slowly to the "normal what should be" icon

    What can i do to solve this issue ?

    Try to do this method of rebuilding the icon cache and then restart the computer. Did it attempt to fix that repetitive icon cache thing?

    I remember having similar a long time ago in windows 7. The fix was a registry tweak, increasing the max cached icons. It might sort this out. You can always delete the line you added if it doesn't work

    Thanks for you help guys but it didn't work, however I found the culprit.. It's Windows Defender !

    Every time after a reboot it just scan every folder I go into, so if the icons cache are rebuild for a reason or an other it just making icon cache building again but very slow because of the scan of files in that folder, and specially my "Download" folder because i have a lot of exe there so a lot of "different icon".

    I just found that the real issue wasn't the cache rebuilding itself after 1 or 2 reboot but the building very slow that annoy me. I disabled real time protection rebuild manually the icon cache and it was so quick that i could see that it's was rebuilt ! but with Windows defender real time protection rebuilding icon cache is slow because of the scan..

    Anyway thanks for you help, hopes my "issue" will be solved one day by an update of Defender. And hopes that my found helps other with this issue
