# Windows 7 Desktop Icons corrupt

iconswindows

I've just run into an issue on Windows 7 whereby a couple of my desktop icons are not showing correctly, see screenshot:

I've tried deleting the icon cache and also changing the Max Cached Icons setting in the registry and rebooting, but neither have helped.

If I browse to C:\eclipse where my Eclipse icon links to, the eclipse.exe file in there also is not showing the expected icon.

I'm completely out of ideas. Can anyone suggest anything else I can try please?

This was fixed by reducing screen color depth to 16bit as suggested by Andreas above, and then deleting USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\IconCache.db. After restoring to 32-bit, the icons reappeared.
