    EDIT: Ok, weirdest thing ever but suddenly there is no problem... This was like this all day until now.

    Check out the picture of my desktop:


    Basically most of the icon graphics for my computer disappeared and were replaced with the standard windows icon cover... (some still remain)

    It's mostly annoying because I keep files on my desktop that I use frequently (pdfs that I'm reading, sound files I'm listening to, notepads, etc) and now it's a lot more difficult to find what I'm looking for because I have to look for it by name instead of shape.

    The smaller icons (such as what you see in Start>allprograms> ) are in tact and if I open up explorer and look for files in small version they seem to be unphased but dunno what the deal is.

    Try this in cmd prompt (should work under each individual, don't think you need Elevated Priv.)

    CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
    DEL IconCache.db /a
