Were you using CCleaner at the time? CCleaner is one of my favorite programs and I have not seen this happen with CCleaner. I have however, seen where many or all of the icons changed due to the IconCache.db file being corrupt. Fortunately, it can safely be deleted as Windows will rebuild with default icons after a reboot. "Show hidden and system files" must be enabled in Windows Explorer (not IE) Folder Options to view the file.

Go to Start, and in the Search programs and files text box, enter:

%localappdata%

...then press Enter. Delete IconCache.db and restart the computer.

You might also check out Microsoft Fix-it.

Have you scanned for malware?

Hi Digerati

I have tried these suggestions,Go to Start, and in the Search programs and files text box, enter:


%localappdata%

...then press Enter. Delete IconCache.db and restart the computer.

Firstly no IconCache.db was there I even search for it. And the problem is so bad now that I can not even access. the internet not because of your suggestions before I did them. I not access anything when I turn on my laptop 32 straight up messages C:\Program Files\CCleaner\CCleaner.exe - This file does not have a program association with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations control panel. I'm actually on another computer to respond to you. Do you have any more suggestions?

Thanks

As I noted, you must have "Show hidden and system files" enabled in Windows Explorer (not IE) Folder Options to view the file. Did you do that?
