Custom Icons Revert To Default On Reboot
Posted on 2004-04-13
I use custom icons and titles for the items on my desktop (my documents, my computer, etc.) and every time that I reboot, they revert to the default icons and titles without any prompting from me to do so.
Things I've tried:
- Deleted IconCache.db to reset the icon cache
- Rebuilt icon cache with tweakuixp
- Used a third party program to set the icons (iconphile)
- Setting the icons/titles manually in the registry (CLSID etc.)
None of these fixes that I tried worked (obviously) and I cannot think of any reason why this problem would have started. I have done many formats and reinstalls of xp pro on this machine and I've never come across this problem before. I suppose I could do a complete format and reinstall, but that seems extreme for nothing more than an annoyance, though it is quite frustrating. All of the other custom icons that I use have been unaffected by this problem nor have any of my shortcuts with custom icons been changed; It's just the icons on the desktop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
