No file explorer or desktop icons showing and other problems
I started using my laptop this morning to find all taskbar icons were all using a default icon and that the desktop icons and file explorer icons had all gone completely blank.
I also cant right click and get Properties to work on anything in file explorer.
Tried lots of delete and rebuild icon cache suggestions.
System Restore no longer works, I get a "Catastophic falure" warning dialogue.
I have no idea what has caused this, no new hardware or software. No changes of anything. My laptop always runs problem free!
I did however notice and only saw this once, a system restore point from 6am this morning, seems to of been created by a windows update while I was asleep, but after I saw that and tried to restore I have never seen it again.
Tried setting up a new user but the issue exists in the new account also. I have also done virus checks and disk checks. No luck in safe mode either.
Any Ideas, thanks loads
