windows program file association settings not working correctly RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently found many application would not save to correct type. Some software icons would come out to a blank or white block, but those software actually there. For example, realrecorder is running, it would come out a white block on taskbar on bottom. 

    I tried use 'access and program default' in control panel, still not fix the issue. Ms word, and word pad also come out white blank icon.


    Any suggestions ?

  • Hi,

    Did you tried any other method to fix this problem for test? What about system icon? Will them also have similar problem?

    Please try to use SFC /scannow command to fix it for test.

  • Hi,

    This issue can occur by corrupted icon cache. To fix the issue, please rebuild icon cache.

    1. Click the Start button, and click Computer .

    2. On the Tool bar, click Organize and choose Folder and Search Options .

    3. Click the View tab, and check to select the Show hidden files and folders option , and click OK .

    4. Then, enter the following directory:

    %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local

    5. Find the IconCache.db file, and rename it as IconCache.db.old.

    6. Close the window, and restart the computer.
