Strange. Is there a way to rebuild the icon cache in Vista?

That is strange, Denis. I know there are a few articles on this I have seen. Let me find you one.

In the meantime, is there a way to get that girl in your avatar to take her underwear off?!

i'm afraid no? sorry

i feel like, there is something wrong with Desktop.ini file.

And how often windows update work. i set my settings (check for updates but let me choose....)

updates since yesterday, should be more right?

worth a try

this i content of desktop.ini for documents folder



[.ShellClassInfo]
LocalizedResourceName=@%SystemRoot%\system32\shell 32.dll,-21770
IconResource=%SystemRoot%\system32\imageres.dll,-112
IconFile=%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll
IconIndex=-235

paste that in notepad, and save as desktop.ini (make sure there is no .txt at the end)
sometimes explorer will not take this right away, either end process on explorer.exe and start it again, or reboot.

in that case it is either registry or these files (imageres.dll, shell 32.dll) that are possibly mest up

have you tried re-building the icon cache?

Launch an elevated CMD window, ie Right click, Run as Administrator...
Shutdown Explorer Process from the Task Manager
In the CMD window go to C:\Users\<ProfileName>\AppData\Local
Do the following command: attrib -H IconCache.db
Do the following command: del IconCache.db
Do the following command: start explorer
