Icon corruption

Sample case:

When I turned on my computer today, I noticed that my folders did not show their icons. They did work when I selected/opened them, but all their icons are lost.

Cause:

Sometimes icons can become corrupt because the section of the registry that handles them, gets full.

Solution:

  1. Download and install tweakui from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/Downloads/powertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx
  2. After installing tweakui, open it from the start menu => all programs => powertoys
  3. In the tweakui menu, on the left, on the very buttom, click on the "Repair" option.
  4. Select "Rebuild icons" and click "Repair Now".

The repair should be immediate.
