Hi,
This isn't a very big problem at all, its just a bit annoying to constantly see. A majority of my desktop shortcut images have been replaced with a blank white page. if anyone has a solution please let me know.

Hi, clearing your icon cache may help.

1. Close and save anything that you are working on before proceeding. The next steps will involve killing explorer and restarting the PC.
2. Open a command prompt.
3. Copy and paste each command below one at a time into the command prompt, and press Enter after each command.

ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache
taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
DEL "%localappdata%\IconCache.db" /A
shutdown /r /f /t 00


The last command will shut down your computer
The above is quoted. I think the last command actually reboots your computer rather than shutting down.
