Application Icons all set to same Icon Tags: Icons Windows XP Last response: September 17, 2004 6:13 PM in Windows XP Share xymox909 September 17, 2004 11:01:46 AM Hi all, I booted up my PC this morning (XP Pro SP2) and all my .exe icons are showing the same icon. I have tried rebooting to no avail. I have tried TweakUI and done a Rebuild Icons but nothing seems to work. Any help/advice here is much appreciated. I'm a fairly advance computer technican but this has me stumped. How does XP know what Icon from the EXE file to display ? Is there some service that performs this ? Is there some sort of "cache" of icons that needs to be deleted ? More about : application icons set icon folken September 17, 2004 6:13:12 PM The icons for .exe files are determined by the program they are associated with. The only thing I can think of that would change .exe's like that would be either a virus or spyware, scan for both. <A HREF="http://www.folken.net/myrig.htm" target="_new">My precious...</A> Can't find your answer ?
