Windows 7 icons not showing up?

  • Post published:July 29, 2013


Here we go…

1. Press WindowsKey + R || open cmd from start menu || run execute
2. Typen in CMD and Press Enter || OK
3. In CMD prompt type in && execute:

TASKKILL /f /im explorer.exe
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
DEL IconCache.db /a
START explorer.exe

MAYBE TASKKILL won’t work for u so feel free to try the following:

TASKKILL [/S system [/U username [/P[password]]]]{ [/FI filter] [/PID processid | /IM imagename] } [/F] [/T]

Parameter Description

/S system Specifies the remote system to connect to. Not needed for most home PCs
/U username User context under which the command should execute. Often not needed on home PCs
/P password Password for username
/FI filter Displays a set of tasks that match criteria specified by the filter
/PID process id Specifies the PID of the process that has to be terminated. Not used when image name is given in the command
/IM imagename Specifies the image name of the process that has to be terminated. Wildcard ‘*’ can be used to specify all image names. Not used if PID is given in the command
/F Forces the termination of all processes
/T Tree kill: terminates the specified process and any child processes which were started by it

That’s it!
