Windows 10: Onedrive displaying ZERO icons

    Onedrive displaying ZERO icons

    Need someone w/ some intricate knowledge to address this. Already been through the staples and this is the very LAST peice of setting up my pc (naturally its where things went awry).

    Have reset onedrive. have uninstalled/reisnstalled client. Have made sure the shellextensions have priority in regedit.

    Ive been cleaning up the context menu between group policy, regedit, and nirsoft and just finished up. Feeling accomplished and relieved...... until i noticed my onedrive is not displaying icons.

    not in the navigation pane.

    not in the folders.

    also the onedrive stuff is missing from the right click menu.

    Something that handles all that stuff was apparently mucked with.

    Anyone with ideas? I'll loooooooooooooove you!

    not sure if its related, but figured id mention

    A) just tried installing onedrive for business and linking a business account after removing regular one drive. No bueno. Same result, sync's both ways just fine but no overlay/activity icons on anything but tray and no share etc on any onedrive items in context menu.

    B) i do "think" i used ccleaner as well for some of my "pruning" and instead of disabling a/the onedrive context menu item - i may have deleted it by accident (assuming one was there in the first place - i just know it isnt now).

    a convoluted problem for sure, one that i am positive someone here with the knowledge of how these things work can solve. Even if a new version of windows launched tomorrow and I had to format, I'd still be apprehensive until I know exactly what caused this ala what fixes it.

    ftr also did an sfc/scannow which did find corrupt files (apparently my start menu organizing since windows readded some folders and shortcuts i deleted/moved) but helped not with the onedrive issue.

    seems to be similar to the issue here Missing Explorer Context Menu Options - Microsoft Community

    the shell seems to be removed from explorer completely. cant be found. re installing dropbox does not refresh it. need to know what/where within the registry to re add said things.

    this ruined my perfect windows install!
