Randomly, some icons in My Computer, Windows Explorer, in your Quick Launch toolbar, or on your desktop, change?

To work around this behavior:

1. Open a CMD prompt and type: attrib -h "%windir%\shelliconcache"

2. Use Windows Explorer to delete the ShellIconCache file in your %Windir% folder.

3. Use Regedt32 to navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer.

4. On the Edit menu, Add Value name Max Cached Icons as a String (REG_SZ) data type.

5. Set the string to a number between 100 and 2000. I prefer 2000. The default is 500.

6. Restart your computer.
