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.)

Hi all,

I installed BSPlayer, didn't like it, and decided to go back to using Divx player.
I have all the file associations sorted so all my video files run in Divx again, but the icons are still the same as they were for the BSPlayer.

I know its not a really big problem, but its annoying!!

Any help?

You could do a system restore using a restore point dated before you made this change to undo it and hopefully restore the icons back to default.

Hello.

I had a weird problem with my folder icons. The normal folders (ones without thumbnails) appear the normal yellow photo that is the default. However, the folders with thumbnails are a different icon of gray and white. For some reason, I cannot change the icon of the folders with thumbnails back to the default, yellow folders. Can anyone help with this? I have manually tried to change it back by "Right clicking, Properties, Customize" and choosing the yellow default folder, but it isn't working.

Hello everyone.

I just installed Adobe Creative Suite CS4. Everything turned out fine. But my icon for the Bridge CS4 .exe file is one of those annoying default icons and I want to change it back. There is a Bridge CS4 .ico file in my Bridge folder but I would like to know how to get that into my Bridge .exe file. A simple but somewhat annoying problem. Does anyone know a quick fix? This is the ONLY icon on my entire computer like this. I don't think it's a virus or malware. I scanned using a bunch of programs. It's a legit copy of CS4. It's definately too minor of a problem to go thru a tech support nightmare. I really don't like looking at it on my desktop or start menu.

Welcome to the Seven Forums

How did you change the icon?

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.

Then do Icon Cache - Rebuild

Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder


may also be relate to the issue that this user had

Shortcut icons re-sizing randomly


My OS had gone crazy and change icon's sizes back to details sizes in random folders, last time i had that issue i thought it was solved by this method

Icons sizes change back to details sizes on specific folder

But unfortunately it only was temporary, i had to format anyway so the problem was solved after the format and never appeared again till 3 days ago.

it not seem to be a virus but it really annoy, the only thing i done 3 days ago that was extraordinary for me was to edit some video on windows live movie maker + cccp codecs, i rarely use WLMM but happened to use it 3 days ago, and after that the issue reappear, i can't use system restore since i done alot of stuff on my pc and don't want to lose them, and also i don't happened to made restore point before the day the issue occurred and the rest are deleted..so SR is not a option.


anyone know what i can do now?

No guarantees these suggestions will work but you could give it a try. See if rebuilding the icon cache helps.

You could also try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two) just in case your system fils got damaged or corrupted somehow. If problems are found, run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

Hello!

I have just setup my new laptop with Windows 10 Home and installed Dropbox. I noticed that the Dropbox folder icon is offset compared to other icons. The folder part of the icon is more towards the top than all other folder icons. See this image:
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

I know it seems like a small issue, but once I saw this, I can't unsee it, and it annoys the heck out of me

So - I designed a new icon. It is basically the same, but with the position fixed and the Dropbox-logo is a flat design. If anyone is interested, you can grab it here:
Dropbox - dropbox-fixed.ico

It looks perfect when changed - BUT, once you restart the computer, the Dropbox folder icon reverts back to the default. I tried it several times.

So I was wondering if it is possible to change the icon elsewhere. Maybe in the regedit somewhere. I don't know enough about that stuff to mess with it.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

I installed a wireless laser printer. To install...you must connect locally with a USB cable to enter the wireless network's password. This process installed a printer locally and the associated icon was the correct icon. I then set it up wirelessly and when it completed...the icon looked like a fax machine.

The icon I want to use exists somewhere.
1) How do I tell what icon is being used for a device
2) How do I specify the icon I want to use for a device.

A:Change icon for printer to a different icon

The simplest way is to right-click on the printer icon and choose Properties. Then look for a "Customize" tab at the top of that box. At the bottom of the Customize tab is a "Change Icon" button. That will open up a box with several preinstalled icons and hopefully what you are looking for will be in there. Make sure you scroll all the way to the right because there are SEVERAL icons in there.

In short: Right-click icon>Properties>Customize Tab>Change Icon button

Help! I lost an icon yesterday and I can't figure out how to get it back.

I have been receiving prompts to upgrade my Windows Media Player but I haven't had time until yesterday. So I proceeded to do so. When the upgrade was completed I noticed that the Windows Media Player icon was gone from my screen.

I am familiar with adding and changing icons on my computer, but I am stumped this time. I have checked the properties of both the old and upgraded media players, and I re-installed the upgraded version in hopes that a new icon would appear. It didn't. I even called Microsoft Windows but I must have called the wrong address because they wanted $60 just to look at my problem! SIXTY BUCKS FOR AN ICON?? I don't think so!

The problem is that now there is no "Videos" folder in the same location as the other standard folders, i.e. Documents, Music, Pictures, etc. When I try to create a folder called Videos, it either tells me that there already is one and cancels, or it will create it and then subsequently not show it there.

It's not hidden, I've checked on that, or renamed. It's gone but Windows seems to think it is still there. Of course I'd like to have it back...how do I either restore it, or hard delete it so that I can create my own?

A:How do i change any icon

Whoa feller. That's an awfully broad question! More specific please.

To get appropriate pictures in Media Player ...

Organize > Options > Library > Retrieve additional information from the Internet
> Privacy > Enhanced Playback - check all values

I'm not sure what you mean with regard to auto playlists. I don't think it's an option.

Is it possible to change this icon? This changed I know not why. It is Toshiba EZ Backup. Cannot figure how it happened. When I go to my wifes' side of the computer ,it is correct. Tried to send from her side to mine with no luck. Everything works fine, just would like the icon to be correct. Any help appreciated. Thank you.....Chuck

A:Change Icon

Try a rebuild icon cache from your side:
Icon Cache - Rebuild

If that doesn't fix it can you post a screenshot of what the icon looks like from her side?
