all of the shortcut icons on my desktop have suddenly changed to identical generic looking white objects. this happened right after a restart after installing windows live movie maker. the non shortcut icons still look normal. i have tried doing change icon in properties and it changes [temporarily] in the properties form, but not on the desk top.
i tried deleting C:\Users\User-Name\AppData\Local\IconCache.db and restart. no joy.
how can i get the original icon appearance back?
