Lost/Incorrect Icons & Program Links

Lost/Incorrect Icons & Program Links

Post by Scot » Sun, 14 Dec 2003 09:58:21


I installed Terminal Services on my Win2000 Server. After
I rebooted the server, I reinstalled SP4 & then rebooted
again. Now most of my icons & program links are lost or
incorrect. The icons appear incorrectly as a generic
program icon instead the correct specific icon for the
program.
Anyone know how to fix this? Any clues?

Thanks, Scott

Here is a fix from a previous post using the free Activicon utility
http://www.yqcomputer.com/

1-- increase the icon cache size to at least 2048, and then
2-- rebuild/purge the icon cache.

- The option for changing the cache size is on its "Desktop Controls"
screen,

- The options for rebuilding the cache are on 2 small round buttons at
the lower/right corner. Shut down any programs running in the
background, then click the round button farthest to the right (your
system will reboot, and the icon cache will be cleaned out).






- return address is altered slightly to reduce spam.
