    Default Icon Cache Rebuilder - Feedback

    While one can always rebuild the icon cache manually in Windows 7 or Vista, our Icon Cache Rebuilder lets you do so in a click!

    This app has been developed by our L.W

    If you have any questions or wish to give feedback, please do so here.

    The download link wwwDOTthewindowsclubDOTcom/downloads/Icon%20Cache%20Rebuilder.zip does not work. (Sorry, not allowed to post URLs...)

    Cheers!

    I tried this, but it does not work for Windows XP. Is there an application that might work? I have tried all the manual stuff but have not had success.

    Thanks in advance.

    NB: This was tested with Windows 7 alone and may work on other versions to.... :-)

    I noticed that. I am just wondering if there is a similar application for Windows XP.

    To rebuild the Icon Cache in Windows XP do the following:
    1.Delete the hidden file ShellIconCache (C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Local Settings\Application Data\Iconcache.db).
    2.Close down all explorer.exe processes using the Task Manager (Or else it will create a faulty file during logoff/restart).
    3.Use the Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) to launch the explorer.exe again (Or press CTRL+ALT+DEL to perform a restart/logoff).
    4.When the Windows Explorer (explorer.exe) starts again, it will recreate a correct Icon-Cache file.


    (Maybe if I ever get enough time to work on it, I'll update the application to work for XP as well)

    Hey L.W., Couldn't this be done with a simple batch file that Windflower could run every now and then?

    Sadly, after a year without using XP I've forgotten the cmd prompt syntax (? %Userprofile%, %Appdata% etc.) for XP, though I can write one for my own system using "long hand", I'm still learning 7!!

    Thanks very much for your reply. I appreciate it.

    I just want to make sure I'm doing this correctly when I close down the explorer.exe processes. I realize that this is a dumb question, but I close down only the process) that specifically says explorer.exe and none of the other .exe processes? I have only one explorer.exe in my Task Manager listing. Should I have more?
