If one or more of your icons are not displaying correctly, or that your icon cache is corrupted, then you might consider rebuilding the icon cache to reset and reload the icon images into the icon cache. The Icon Cache or IconCache.db is a special database file that Windows utilizes to keep copies of each icon handy

Having to retrieve all possible icon images from hard disk and to render them dynamically can consume lots of system resources. As a result, Windows save icons it’s already retrieved in its memory. When Windows needs to draw an icon, it uses the copy from the cache instead of retrieving the icon image from the original application file. This helps in making Windows draw the icons faster.

Hi, In our tests the program was able to replace bad icons from the cache without any problems, the biggest advantage of the program was that it did not restart explorer. Once you have tried the program, we would appreciate it if you would let us know the results.
However, if you continue to have problems with icon views, there may be a problem with your system.
I end-up having to rebuild my icon cache fairly often, but after having googled the issue repeatedly over the years, I now have a v. simple batch file that does this automatically… All it does however is stop explorer, delete iconcache* files from the Local App Data and restart explorer.
• Does Rebuild Icon Cache do more than this?
• Would I benefit from using Rebuild Icon Cache?
Can you update this as rexplorer?
