Icons Cache


OSNN Senior Addict
Somehow my icons got messed up and html files have a jpeg icon and bmp's have and exec. icon.

how can i clean the cache adn bring things back to normal ?


I may actually be insane.
If you have SP1 installed you can use TweakUI from the powertoys set to flush the icon cachce, there is probably a way to do it manually, but not on that I know of :confused:


Another way of rebuilding the icon cache is this:

Right click desktop - properties - appearence - advanced

change the icon size, let's say from 32 to 33

hit OK and "Apply"

click "advanced" again and change the icon size back to 32

OK and OK

This tiny program does this with a single click, RebIC



Icon Cache is tricky - I had some pobs where I would flush the cache and it would go back o normal, others I had to reformat to get it back to normal ...

what you could do it go to folder Options/file types and change them back manually - You did'nt by any chance install Icon Packager or something did you ?


Had that same problem with my mom's 'puter. Do a search on Google for a program called RefreshEm. It fixed my mom's machine.

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
