Broken Icons?

The shortcut icons on my desktop seem to have a no icon icon on top of them with the intended icon in the back. Anyone know what is up with this and how I can fix it?

delete IconCache.db reboot pc - although just deleting it should be ok best to reboot

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Local Settings\Application Data - xp
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local - vista

I haven't changed any icon changers. I will try the suggestions when I get home to my desktop.

Much thanks! Rep should really be brought back so I can rep everyone. :(

Doesn't work. As you can see from the screenshot of the icon, the program icon is actually there ... just hidden behind an unknown filetype icon.

I don’t know what could have caused that but they should be just shortcuts to the program, if you click on one will the program open that is supposed to?

Also because one is on top of another one I wonder if you could drag the top shortcut to the recycle bin and the bottom one “original” would stay put?

What happens if you right click and select delete on one…because there are two maybe it will just delete the top one unless there tied together somehow.

The shortcut works as it is supposed to and it is actually just one icon ... just with a missing icon icon overlayed over the intended icon. Very dumb bug or whatever this is.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
