Shortcuts and icons missing pictures (images) or blank

Here are two possible fixes I’ve come across on the internet:

  1. Just refresh the icon cache by deleting the IconCache.db file from your profile directory (usually /Documents and Settings/Username/Local Settings/Application Data). It will be automatically recreated.


  1. go into Display Properties under the Appearance tab. From the Item drop-down list, choose Icon.
  2. Click the up arrow in the Size box to increase it one size. Click Apply.
  3. Click the down arrow in the Size box to return the icons to their previous size. Apply.
