Strange Folder icon & icon issue's

Hello

I am very confused and struggling to correct this issue.

normally every folder containing files gets the preview on the icon of the containing files, but every single folder like this on my PC shows a preview of the Masseffect 2 game icon?
Of course not causing me any issues but very annoying.

This may also be related, some of my desktop, start menu and taskbar icons are not displaying their icon correctly, I am just getting the icon when the icon file cannot be found. If I find the directory of these applications and go to change the icons they already have the correct icon file selected and showing in the properties menu but not displaying them displaying correctly. I followed instructiond to delete the Icon cache so it would be recreated upon reboot but no joy.

Hope this all makes sense?

Many Thanks in advance

Hi #ELMO#, try creating a new User Account with the same privileges as the one you are currently using and logon to it. Do you have the same problem in the new account?

Hello AnnMarie

Thanks for the reply.

Gave that ago and still seeing the masseffect 2 icon in files. The icon files do seem to come back though.
The only thing that seems to work for the icon file missing temporarily is uninstalling and reinstalling the applications with this issue. Wonder how long this will last.

Is the Masseffect 2 game still installed? If so, try uninstalling it and tell me if you still have a problem.
