Windows Server 2008 icons, some are fully transparent

I just installed WSUS onto my windows server 2008 and after the install some of the desktop icons turned transparent.  How do I turn them back to non-transparent? Screengrab

Hi GreyHippo,

maybe your Icon-Cache is corrupt or damaged. You can try to rebuild it by deleting it and re-starting explore process - take a look here about further info: http://smallvoid.com/article/windows-icon-cache.html

I don't exactly know where this icon cache is located in Windows Server 2008, but I guess it should be the same as in Vista/7 in C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\IconCache.db

Hope that helps,

ZOPPO

The reason I asked is this just happened to me last week when added a feature to a 2008 server. After bouncing icons all returned.

Have you checked your server 's CPU or Memory, which has enough resources to support your WSUS service?

Sometime I also have the same case when the service is top loading. Now try to turn off WSUS service (DIsabled), and then reboot....  what's an outcome ?
