  • i downLoaded an aLienguise theme just to try it out then uninstaLLed it. now my icons Look different. i've tried doing a system restore to restore everything just the way it was but to no avaiL.

    Hi

    Was this theme downloaded from the Alienware website

    If so, you need to check with Alienware Support first for any known issues when installing those themes in Windows 7.

    Let us know what you find.


    Thank You for using Windows 7

  • Also, you can try reloading the icon cache by the steps below to check the issue:

     

    1. Click Start, and open 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.

     

    Hope this helps.
