you can try to do it yourself:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID.

"DefaultIcon" key


{1A9BA3A0-143A-11CF-8350-444553540000} - Favorites

Have a second look. If they are not there then you also won't have anything in your start menu.

HK_CLASSES_ROOT goes through the abc two times. The CLSID key is in the second round.

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
