Have a customer with 20 Win7 x64 pc's.
5-6 of these looses their shortcuts every now and then.
It's not unused icons that end up in a folder on the desktop.
It's icons they use every day.
Their solution so far has been to copy them all to a folder and just copy them out to the desktop every time they og MIA..
Have tried making a bat file with following text based on a tip.
taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe
cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
attrib –h IconCache.db
It's a Win 2008r2 server and computers are in domian but no centralized profiles (roaming profiles)
