    Hello everyone.

    I'm dealing with a weird issue here. It seems that I have lost the icons to all my programs. They are all white!!!

    I can use all the applications with no problems.

    The strange part about this is if I restart my computer the icons show up fine in the start menu, but as soon as I open firefox or IE (many just any application) they all go away. I really don't think it's a file association problem since the applications do open. Any ideas?

    So, you can either clear the cache via the command prompt, or through resetting default programs, and it works. But on my machine, it only works for a little while. Any clue why this might be?
