Preferred Solution: Blank icon

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Okay, as the title states I'm getting blank paper icons, but only in one specific folder. Any folder in my Documents folder refuses to show the windows 8 folder icon.
And some folders inside of any of the said initial folders are blank white paper as well, while others are showing it perfectly fine. The other strange thing is, is when I take all the files out of the blank folders and move them to another folder, the said blank folder resets itself and the folder icon suddenly works. Now this is for medium and tile view of the icons. It was at first only doing it on the large view, but now it's only those two views.
 
Any help would be appreciated. My windows is up to date and I've scanned for virius and malware with nothing to show. I've also restarted it as well.
I've attached a screenshot of the folder.

When I create a shortcut desktop icon which links to an MS-DOS "EXE" file, the desktop icon is blank (just white with no Icon). When I go to the Properties window and select an Icon, the selected Icon shows up on the "Program" sheet but not on the "General" sheet - of the Properties window. How do I get Vista to show the selected Icon on the desktop?

TIA,

A:Blank Desktop Icon

So you are making shortcut of cmd.exe?

Well I tried it and my icon shows right. I think best course of action would be try aplying some other icon to your shortcut (I have non english Vista so I'm not 100% sure about name of tabs) Properties -> Program -> Change Icon -> Browse You can use any exe file with icon or %systemroot%System32/Imageres.dll has some general icons.

If other icons work and you want original icon back just change icon to what you find from %systemroot%System32/cmd.exe

OK! - Where do i start?

My limewire stopped working and wouldn't open. So i removed it and reinstalled it - still the same. I even wasted my money and brought PRO and obviously didnt make a difference.
I then figured it must be Java so i tried to uninstall that however even though it appeared to be uninstalled, everytime i would try to reinstall Java it would prompt me something like

''This Software has already been installed on your computer, would you like to continue to reinstall?'' - and when i select yes the box disappears!!
Also i had an blank icon on my control panel that i couldnt do anything with.
After 5 hours on the net trying to find out how to remove the icon I ended up removing it by downloading a app called 'Shell Object Editor'
I thought that must have resolved it however i continued to have the same message appear saying it was still installed however when i clicked 'yes' this time a message followed:

''This action is only valid for products that are currently installed''
By doing an advanced search, i was able to bring up all the files related to java including the hidden/non-indexed files and deleted them all however there were 3 files named 'Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0' that would delete??? Another message

Now I've been having quite a deal of trying to restore a lot of default stuff after having some theme files go wrong. As you could see I've been posting recently about "how to get this back", "why is this blank" stuff like that, I'm sorry. I guess this is what happens when you don't back up your files. I'm learning the hard way and will back up my files next time. :I

Now to my question, every time I download something it's icon shows up as a blank page (picture) and this isn't only for iTunes. I was just using iTunes as an example. But as you can see in the picture provided, there is a blank page for the icon. I don't know why it's doing this, it does this both in Firefox and Chrome, I reinstalled Firefox and it still does it. Here's a catch though, whatever I download has a correct icon for it in my downloads folder or where ever I save my download too. (This only applies if it has it's own icon, like iTunes for it's installation.exe icon). I'm pretty mind boggled about this. I don't know any other reason why it could be doing this. I just did a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) and at the time being, I cannot restore my hard drive as in I need an Acer recovery disc, which I do not have (which I'm sure if I could do this, it would solve my problem).

Thank you for reading this. (:

A:Blank icon everytime I download something?

Hello CosmicPoptart,

The program's icon will be seen on it's .exe file or shortcut instead.

That's the "Open File - Security Warning" prompt, and is common for the icon to be like that in it. You could use the tutorial below to unblock the downloaded file to stop getting this.

I received 4 files from a coworker stating that she couldn't open them, but since she didn't need them and I did, would i deal with the problem. Well, the icons for the files (3 are .jpg -unknown creating program, 1 .doc -created in word) are blank, that is they look like a sheet of white paper and they also have a small black clock (or something that looks verymuch like a clock) in the lower left hand corner of the icon. The files, which should be rather large are showing as only being 2kb (the pics should be 1mb+ each). I would go to the source who created the files, only she left her job a year ago and the coworker who sent the files to me inherited her computer. Both my and my coworker's computers are identical, running windows 2000, with all 200 apps. the word version is 9.0.4527. I have tried saving the files, "open with", and opening them from with in various apps, nothing is working. I figure there is a really simple solution that I have no clue about. Any advice, etc. would be appreciated.

A:FIles are blank, unknown icon

Hi!

I don't want to get your hopes up making you think that I know the answer. Sadly, I probably know as little (or less) as you do about what the heck is going on with your crazy doc file.

I just have one tiny suggestion that may or may not help.

(Have you tried this already?)
When you right-click the ICON of the document and choose "Properties," what kind of information do you get?? Does the properties window indicate anything about "shortcut" this or "target" that?

Also, compare the Properties window you get for the mystery file to the Properties window you get when you right-click the icon of a KNOWN GOOD DOCUMENT.

I'm hoping this could give us more clues.

I'm also hoping that someone else will have even better advice.

Overall, though, I can't help but feel that the inaccurate file sizes could be a bad sign.

Do you think you could save a screen-shot of the white-sheet-with-black-clock image. Could you save a graphic of that (with Print Scrn or something) and upload it as a attachment here in the forum thread as a bmp or a jpg???

Maybe if someone sees the icon it will jog their memory

An unusual problem in Windows 8.

I have downloaded a .dot template to print a calendar from MS Outlook. The template works fine by double clicking the icon but the .dot icon on the desktop is a blank square with the name of the template below it.

The original downloaded file in a folder shows the icon with the MS Word picture but as soon as I move it to the desktop the icon goes blank.

I have ensured that the file is associated with MS Word (2003) and the icon shows with the picture in the file associations program.

I have also tried deleting the icon cache and rebooting but all stays the same with a blank icon.

Hi all ...

Recently I've been getting a little blank Word icon showing up as processing. Has a blue title top and the window is blank.

It doesn't show up in the Task Bar or Windows Task Manager.

The only way I know it is there is using old school of Alt+Tab to toggle amongst programs, i.e., Outlook, Windows Media (music), Word and Internet. Yes, I obviously highlight it to bring it up but it doesn't come up.

To use the Alt+Tab toggle method there has to be at least two programs open. I've tried all the combinations above. It shows up but I still can't get it to come to the forefront.

I can't afford to buy my Norton virus update so I downloaded Avast and did a "thourough" scan (6 hours). Nothing. Nada. Zip. It still comes back.

I can get rid of it by re-booting. It seems my computer slows down when it shows up. Thus if I can't find it I can't get rid of it.

Class, any thoughts or suggestions????

In IE6 with WinXP I find it convenient to include a shortcut to about:blank in my quick start taskbar menu. I've done this for years, and IE has associated a tooltip with this icon that reads "about:blank." I'm able to control the nature of the tooltip associated with such icons by renaming the shortcut. This is not working with the about:blank shortcut, but I can live with a tooltip reading "about:blank." However, I'm now continually annoyed by a preface to the tooltip that gives the URL of a page I recently went to. So the tooltip now reads, "http://formmailto.com/formmailto/formhelp.htm about:blank."

This is very weird. The tooltip does not change, even though I've visited many other pages from the about:blank page. I've deleted the about:blank shortcut and re-created it, only to see the exact same annoying tooltip. I've also run the System File Checker, to no avail.

I don't need any tooltips for these shortcuts, and, if I have to have them, I certainly don't want a tooltip pointing to an irrelevant page. What can I do?

Before the problem the little spyglass icon stayed active and clicking it would bring up the Magnifier control rectangle allowing me to close the magnifier. Clicking the useless little white square blank area does nothing so I have to go down to my magnifier icon on the taskbar to close the application.

As a solution you can do the following:

2. Go to Office folder

Or Program Files (x86) if you installed it there.

3. Find OUTLOOK.EXE , Right click - Copy.

If you try to pin exe files itself, you will get missing icon. So you need to pin a shortcut that you will make yourself.

Hi Everyone,  I just got a previously owned s10 from someone who had it only a year. It didn;t have the battery pack so I;ve just been running it using the AC adapter, which has been working great. Thursday nite I updated the BIOS to the latest version, 14CNA0WW, it all went fine, it rebooted, I checked the version and it was showing the new one. I used it more that nite and then turned it off. Yesterday I tried to turn it on but all I got was the battery icon light (orange)  on the front would blink 3 times and then stop. Nothing comes up on the screen. I tried removing the harddrive and putting it back, hold down the power button for 10 seconds. This should be able to run straight off AC without a battery attached, right? I do have one on order coming in, hopefully that's the problem. Any other suggestions? Thanks

My computer has been crashed for about 2 weeks or more, but the toshiba splash screen comes and says press f2 and f12, then it loads the microsoft splash then it looks like the screen goes off for a split second then comes back on and the mouse icon comes up then blank screen nothing loads, just the mouse icon is up and working, i restart it, then the safe mode screen comes up then i try to load up safe mode and that doesn't come up either, and i've tried startup repair to command prompts and nothing works so far, and its a toshiba satellite a505-s6569 and when i use startup repair the problem event is startuprepairV2 with external media and one of the signatures says noOsinstalled, and i've tried bootrec.exe as well and still nothing.

Any Help, thanks in advance.

Hello if your computer comes on at all have you tried to run from an elevated command prompt sfc /scannow just the way you see it this can fix a lot of error's for you. If you have already run it what does the sfc /scannow report say.

start "" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --app=<some url>
This launches the program but the taskbar icon is blank.
Is there a switch or some other method to not have a blank icon ?
