    I wonder if this is just my computer, or does anyone have the same issue ?

    Since the 9879 install, 4 of my 5 forum desktop shortcuts have turned generic.
    The rest of the shortcuts are fine.

    I had tried the followings but result still the same......
    Refresh desktop.
    Delete and re-create shortcuts.
    Clear IE browser cache.

    Have you tried deleting the icon cache?

    Clear browser cache is not enough ?
    The rest of the desktop shortcuts are ok.

    No not really.. If you enable the Hidden items then go to C:\Users\[your name]\AppData\Local and just delete the Icon cache file found there. Reboot and your icons will be rebuilt hopefully fixed.

    Before you posted the above, I went and use a tutorial to Rebuild Icon Cache, and the rebooted. Does not work.

    Under Local, can't find the Icon cache file....................
