Windows 7 icon cache issues. Icons very slow to update.

It looks like the cache file is ok and if I delete it Windows will recreate it but I have the same issue. It's hard to see in the video but at first the icons are all there just as they should be, then Windows clears them all and (very slowly) refreshes them.

See the video:

Thanks for any help.

No, no viruses. New Windows 7 install all new hardware. I have found that it only happen with shortcuts to files that are on a 4TB data drive. If the shortcuts are on the system drive all is well. ???
