Manually Rebuild the Icon Cache using the Command Promp

Sometimes your icons go crazy and disappearing. More often Windows 7 and Firefox. You can fix it with a few lines in the command prompt

  • ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache
  • taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
  • DEL “%localappdata%\IconCache.db” /A
  • shutdown -r -f -t 0

Note: The last command will restart the computer, so be sure to close and save anything that you are working on first.

The IconCache.db file has now been rebuilt.
