    No Icons Visible

    Hi,

    This problem started today, where I have no icons, and I also cannot open the Start Menu. On my desktop shortcuts, all I can see is the text, but not the shortcut icon. This is also the same for my folder icons, where I can just see the name.

    I have tried rebuilding the cache file and rebooting.

    If anyone can help me with this, I will be grateful.

    As I said, I have already tried rebuilding the icon cache, and nothing happens.

    I will have a quick look at safe mode and see if the icons work. I will reply to say whether they do or not.

    I would boot into safe mode, disconnect your computer from the network and do some scans.

    1) Run ccleaner on it CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
    2) Run malwarebytes Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download
    3) Run your AV scan
