Some icons no matter where they are located don't display there actual picture but a white paper instead. Most of the time it only happens if I put it in a folder. And sometimes even on the desktop. I would really not like to have to set the icon up manually, because Windows is supposed to do that on its own, and also because they are adding up! Now for the testing done so far. It seems that for the desktop problem if you copy instead of right click "send to" then the icon will show up when you paste it, but it will say "Copy" in the name on the icon, if I edit it and delete the word "Copy" and click out of it to save then the icon reverts back to the paper. This trick has no effect with the folders however. It actually has "Copy" written in it but the text is to long so you just see the "..." Also this issue only happens to the shortcuts of the actual file, and only on random files. If I were to go to Program Files and find the folder then "Move" the icon to the desktop then it works fine. But in the folder that contains the actual file then icon is missing, it only appears when I "Move" it to the desktop So I don't really understand whats going on? This is really weird. Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate it! If you have any questions or need anything from me don't hesitate to ask.
