'''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:'''
 
 
 
# Download and install tweakui from Microsoft: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/Downloads/powertoys/Xppowertoys.mspx
 
# After installing tweakui, open it from the start menu => all programs => powertoys
 
# In the tweakui menu, on the left, on the very buttom, click on the "Repair" option.
 
# Select "Rebuild icons" and click "Repair Now".
 
 
 
The repair should be immediate.
