I reformatted my system and now all the custom icons are white/blank while for example My Computer, My Documents icons are displayed just fine.

I do believe a solution is simple as changing a registry key but I can't find any useful info on google.
I found one possible solution, so I tried to repair the icons by rebuilding them via TweakUI but it didn't work.

Any suggestions?



Here's what fixed it for me (in case anyone finds this thread via search or something);

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\exefile\DefaultIcon]@="%1"
