No, XP doesn't have one, that is left over from your upgrade from 9x/ME
don't worry about it

9x would recreate it on reboot, but since xp doesn't use, or need it, that is why it wasn't recreated

Hi Stevenlewis,

Glad to see they haven't caught up with you yet :).

The reason I asked about the shellconcache is my desktop icons are loading up slower. They show up first as a text icon than change one at a time to what there supposed to be. It doesn't take long just annoying. I remembered that after deleting shellconcache the same thing would happen until shellconcahce "remembered" them.

Hi Jim, LOL nope haven't caught up with me yet.
I suggest the usual cleanup routines, defrag, disk cleanup
remove all unneeded protocols, etc
get the latest greatest vid drivers for your card. But as far as the shelliconcache, I have a clean install of xp, and no iconcache
