Hi, today I had a problem with Windows Vista..

The System was up for quite a while, Everything was running just fine, when suddenly, the strange things started to happen.. Most of my Icons practically disappeared/changed..

Well i thought about Icon cache and decided to reboot the system for/to clean it up..

But that was just time wasting, after reboot, icons still stayed "corrupted"

So i deleted the cache manually, and decided to post here a quick tip for you on how to do it (if you experiencing the same prob.)

1. Run Command Promt (start-run-cmd), and enter the following line in there..:

cd \users\***\appdata\local

Where "***" your user accounts name (James for example)

..Leave CMD open.. and proceed to 2nd "Step"

2. Now start "Task Manager" (Ctrl+Alt+Del), switch to "processes tab" and Kill process called "explorer.exe"

3. Now when you have Windows Explorer closed,
Alt+Tab back to Command Promt, and Enter the following line in there

attrib h IconCache.db


del IconCache.db

/and finally/

start explorer

Now icons should get back to normal again :(
Thank you
