Icon Images not showing up

Q: Icon Images not showing up

Just reformatted my computer the other day, and now at certain times after I restart most of the icons aren't showing their image. They work fine, but it is still annoying. Here is a ss, anyone know why it's doing this?

Preferred Solution: Icon Images not showing up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I look for an image in "google image", nothing shows but blank pictures with an "x" on the upper left corner of the blank images in google image. This just occured recently, then the images came back for a while, then this same problem occured again, can't figure this one out. I even reset the internet settings and all, but no help. Can someone here tell me what the problem is?

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:

It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

Really weird, see attachment.. Tried resetting the icon cache. It's like this on all of my desktop icons.. any ideas?

Hello JingleJangle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like your shortcut arrow overlay icon got messed up somehow. You can use either method in the tutorial below to restore the arrow icon. Method Two is the easiest way with the program.

Hi all, I have recently reinstalled my computer because of a popup problem, I have reinstalled many times before and never had a problem like this:

Say if I am viewing ebay, none of the centre section loads, all I get is page cannot be displayed.

Pictures from this location will load up, but pictures from will not show up making the page display badly, none of the images show in my ebay,

I have save.exe on my computer but have disabled that, I have mcafee 9 firewall and antivirus and have disabled them, I have even tried installing firefox and it still does it,

Is there a setting somewhere I have missed, if you cannot understand this, I will install a screen capture program and post screenshots.

Hi All

Im having a really annoying problem with my pc, on some websites images are not showing up ( for example). i am running win xp sp2 with all updates, i use zonealarm and norton antivirus and have checked both for settings blocking images and cant find any thing. I have tried using both Firefox and IE6 with no success so it appears not to be a browser issue. I have accessed these sites on a different computer and the websites have been fine. I have checked the forum and tried all the obvious solutions (ticking java and images), installing java 1.4sdk but nothing seems to help !!!!

If some one has any idea of how to solve this i will be very appriciative.



A:Images not Showing up on Web

Hi and welcome to TSF

Did this issue just start without explanation?

Have you tried clearing temporary files and cookies from IE - TOOLS>Internet Options>Delete both ? Some sites will not render in Firefox anyway - maybe the two issues overlap.

Have you tried switching your file wall off just to test out that possibility?

I would try uninstalling and re-installing zone-alarm.

Also, an additional check for malware might be worthwhile:-

Hi All,

Back to pick your collective brains once again ......

I've been using my computer for several months now, with little or no problems.

I've installed no new software, made no new changes ( at least not consciously ) but today i started experiencing problems with IE7

When i load a web page, it loads text only and no images or graphics.

It doesnt seem to be a problem for flash content, but rather static images, logo's and the likes.

If i right click on the image, and select " display picture " it loads it fine, but i cant figure out why this would be happening.

Anyone else come across this problem and have any solutions ?

Thanks in advance.

Well I use to use IE on my destop but since I got a laptop ive started to use firefox and I love it !!

Now, I use forums and everything and people post screenshots, with firefox it chooses to show them when it wants. Sometimes it just leaves a blank space and other time it loads them. Most of the time it doesnt load it though.

Ive tried using IE and sometimes it doesnt even show pictures. I searched it and saw a guy fixed it because he had a prob with Zone Alarm, I have zone alarm but I set my cookies to low so it would accept everything.

I really would like it to load pictures, anyone know wut the problem is?

I got a new Samsung laptop because my other laptop was slow and old. However, there is something strange in this laptop the images on firefox don't appear all the time.

I followed their guide: Cleared cache and cookies, it worked for few hours then images are not loading.
- I deleted my ESET smart security: It didn't do anything.
- I installed Panda free antivitus and still the same problem. So it's not from the antivirus program I'm using.

I checked my other laptop and images are showing without any problem, so it can't be from my connection.

What else can I do? I think I exhausted my laptop uninstall and Install a lot of programs and it's still new.

Thank you very much!

Just within the past week or so, when viewing pics in windows explorer, only some of the thumbnails will show the image they are representing. Some won't. I tried rebuilding the library and doing Disk Cleanup to delete them so they'd rebuild; I've checked/unchecked the "show icons not thumbs" to see if that would kick it into showing it. Nothing has helped.
Also, maybe related, when opening up any Windows explorer window, the green bar at the top is very slow to load all the way to the right, sometimes never getting to the other side.

Recently many of the sites that I visit have the empty box with a small red X in it in place for images. At first I thought it was just the site but now it's happening on almost all sites that have a lot of images. I usually have to refresh the page three or four times before they all show up properly. It doesn't to seem to be any specific type of image I cant view. It happens with both JPEGs and GIFs.

So then I thought that it could possibly be my firewall. So I disabled it and refreshed the page again but that didn't work. So I decided to come here and get some help if possible. It is getting very frustrating.

I'm running Windows 2000, and I want to be able to see JPEG images when I select "Thumbnails" under the View menu. Currently, the only images that display are Windows bit map images (BMP). I know it's possible to see JPEG windows as thumbnails under Windows 2000 because I used to have a different computer that ran 2000 and did display JPEGs. However, I got a new computer that doesn't. I'm assuming there is a way to tell Windows 2000 to display JPEG images in thumbnails, but I can't find any reference to thumbnail views in Windows help or on the Microsoft website.

Guys, I don't know what happened. I was just browsing online - and everything has been fine with my Firefox (version 3.0.11). Then all of a sudden, images on websites stopped loading. ALL images - even tiny .gif icons for this forum. Background images won't load.

Was there an update or something that has caused this? I can load images in Internet Explorer just fine. I have tried clearing all private data (cache, offline content, temp files, cookies) and nothing is helping. I have disabled Adblock Plus and any other Add-ons that I can think would cause this.

I have even restarted Firefox numerous times and NO images are loading. Help please! Is this happening to anyone else?

I have a Digitech XC4881 scanner that I am trying to use to convert my wedding photos on (in hindsight, should have had digital photos taken!).

The scanner seems to have installed correctly and the appropriate windows are coming up. However, when I put the negatives in, the scanner doesn't seem to read them. Where I should be able to see a 'Live view' of the negative image, nothing comes up. If I try to take a 'snapshot' all I get is white.

Any suggestions?

A:Digitech XC4881 - Images not showing

Are talking about using negatives like the older cameras used & converting the negative into a digital photo? You will need a light box, a scanner will not work properly. This conversion box takes the old 35mm negatives and slides and converts them into .jpgs.

I have no idea what happened, but it seems any images that should be in programs, or email aren't showing. When I pull up a program it opens fines and seems to work, but alot of the images (buttons) are not there.

I've check my security settings, and they seem to be correct as far as allowing for downloading of images, but no dice.

I've tried all my security settings in Outlook as well to allow to view images... nothing.

I'm at a loss...

Right now, the shortest interval that wallpaper images in a slide show is 1 minute. I like looking at the pictures and would like to shorten the interval between pictures to anywhere between 15 and 30 seconds. Hoping there is some kind of hack that will allow for this...

This isn't stricktly quot installation and setup quot I don't think but I can't find anywhere else it fits either so hopefully it is OK here I have made a couple of system images using W 's own native system image creator but they automatically identify themselves with the wrong time and date My OS clock is correct and my BIOS clock is correct AFAIK i e going into the pre-boot settings where you can shuffle up the boot order and checking it in there but my images are created showing that one made at was made at am if using the disc on showing time images Wrong system and searching for a system image to restore from and if I go into the Wrong time showing on system images backup and restore centre within W it tells me the Wrong time showing on system images most recent system image was made at It also puts them all in a folder with today's date I had a heart attack thinking it had overwritten my previous backup despite saying that would not happen on an external hard drive but would on a network but when I go into the startup repair booting from the disc it does indeed offer me both options albeit with strange times on them Is that normal and is there a way I can force it to place each image in a separate folder without that complicating the restore process Oh as an aside the quot create a system repair disc quot thing doesn't work for me nor did it ever work when I had Vista I can write the disc it simply doesn't boot Not too annoying because the installation DVD has the same tools on it but just another part of the process that is not working Any idea what is causing this bizarre mislabelling It's very confusing when trying to find the correct image

This started a few days ago where some images in my feed show as black boxes. For example after scrolling for a couple of pages a photo posted will show as a black box. If I click on the picture it opens ok in a new view. Then I will scroll another couple of pages and the posters Icon will not show up, Just a black box.

Things I have done to try and resolve. Refreshed firefpx, deleted cache, deleted user profile, uninstalled and re-installed, disabled adblock plus, disabled hosts file. Running out of options.

Doesnt happen in IE11 or seem to happen on other pages. Clearing the cache seems to fix for a few pages then it starts again.

Anyone suggest a fix?

Here?s a very bizarre one:
I?m using the Customize features in the Folder Properties in Windows 7. I have a whole lot of images of old cars arranged in folders by manufacturer. Each folder image is the manufacturer?s logo, which looks very cool. All very well and good. But now once in a while when I make a new folder, rename it, or sometimes just move it, one of those images will show up on the icon of the new folder! It can be any of them at random. Mind you, the image isn?t in the folder itself, it?s getting it from somewhere else. I can make it go away by using the Restore Default button, but it?s very annoying. Is a bug? What?s going on?

If I understand it correctly, the folder icons show the two most recently modified images as part of their thumbnails.

The easiest way to get around this is to take you favourite picture and save it as "folder.jpg"

1) The "Normal" thumbnail view of a folder:

2) Make a copy of the image you want to use, and rename it to "folder"

3) The thumbnail view of a folder containing an image named "folder.jpg"

On a Dell Desktop running Windows XP, the icons on the desktop are split in half and reversed. (For example if the icon image was a number, 1234, it is showing up as 3412). Literally the image is split in half and then the halfs reversed.

I tried to reset the default icons through the desktop preferences but it only changed the standards, my computer etc, back and the others stayed split.

Any idea what may have caused this or how to make it better?

I've been using the Shortcut Arrow Remover Program for a long time now and it's been working perfectly

But after I had opened my computer and took off my fan guard from my PSU I must have jogged something inside my computer because now all the shortcut arrows show up as missing images.

It could have also been to do with CCleaner when I did a clean up. I don't normally use the registry function to fix "Unused file extensions" and seeing how the icon remover program uses the .ico I think it stopped it from working.

Here is a screenshot of my desktop, as you can see where the "blank.ico" should be used it's now missing or not be able to be read.

I'm a new windows 10 latptop owner, previously used windows 7 with the classic theme. In both win 7 aero and in win 10, I dislike how the use of alt-tab and hovering over taskbar icons shows a series of miniatures images of windows. This is a terrible user interface --- all my windows are dense with text and could be scrolled to any point, so they can't be identified from the image. What I need to see are window titles. Or in the case of alt-tab, icons. Win 10 does show the titles but not stacked vertically, making them difficult to scan by eye. Same with icons---they are tiny little things in a sea of useless image.

So can I change the win 10 theme to show a vertical stack of window titles when hovering over the taskbar, and to show icons when doing alt-tab switching?

I have yet to spot a pattern for when the images are there or not there! But just lately it seems they are not there a lot more!!!!

Any ideas?

Can you post a screen shot, so we can get a better of the issue.

You can also try to rebuild your Icon Cache folder. First you will need to 'Show Hidden Files and Folders'

To do this press the Windows Key + E (the windows key is near the space bar) > Tools (located in the toolbar) > Folder Options > View > click on 'Show Hidden files, folders, and drives'

Next open Windows Explorer (using the Windows + E keys) if it is closed from the previous instructions.

Go to C:/users/username/AppData/Local now find the file IconCache.db and rename it IconCache.db.old then restart you computer.

If your laptop works correctly on an external monitor, then it points either to the screen invertor, or the ribbon connection between the motherboard and the screen.
The invertor will cost about 18 or $32, but you can re-fit the screen ribbon yourself for free. But it's not out of the question it could be a screen panel

I can't figure out why Foxit Reader is showing the pdf icons as generic like the one pictured below.
I tried Icon Cache Rebuilder and that didn't work.
Does anyone know how I can get the default Foxit icon to show for my pdf files?
Thank you.
Running Windows 7

A:PDF Icon Showing Generic

Hello Dawter -
There are 2 general ways to do this -
1. Un / Reinstall the program
2. Right click on the Icon and select Properties > Often there is an option to "Change Icon"
If you select option 2 a range of mainly Generic icons are offered to you - Select one of the offered items.
If this option is not offered, yours may just pop back, or you can use Option 1-
Thank You -

I created an autoplay cd-rom for pc. In the root of the cd I have an AUTORUN.INF file that contains:


The mike.ico icon is located in the fscommand folder.

The cd starts and autoplays as it should. However, the icon does not appear... a weird default icon appears. I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Any ideas?

I noticed recently that all the icon thumbnails in programs (Corel, Adobe CS3) are all showing up as the generic broken link icon (a page with 3 shapes of different colors whereas should be the actual icon from the specific programs). I also noticed that in my music folders all the albums had a pile of thumbnails everywhere in each individual folder also there's this "thumbs.db" file showing up in each individual folder.

I'm a little bit confused as in what had happened and would like to know how to resolve it. I suspect is something to do with the registry error.
Any help would be appreciated.

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a problem with the webpage icon shortcut. When I go to a given program using Start > All Programs > any program with a link to their web page, the icon displayed is the default document icon %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll (1) and not the web browser icon IE or FF. I have to change these manually by finding the icon target and changing it for each program's webpage.

Is there a way to correct this where I don't have to manually change each one but where the change would apply to all program's webpage shortcuts? I would like for the webpage icons to display the FF icon.

Many thanks for any help.

A:Webpage icon not showing

Try right clicking on one and choose "Open With" and then "Choose Program". A list should appear. Select Firefox from the list and make sure the "Always open this type of file with this program" checkbox is selected. Then hit OK. See if that works.

My usb icon does not show. Its not a big deal but it really annoys me when things dont work the way they are supposed to especially when they used to. This happened about a month ago. I turned on my laptop and bam, all of a sudden icons arent showing up and looking through forums i have fixed all but one. When i plug in any mass storage device (usb; flash drive, external hard drive, mp3 player) the icon shows a general icon as if the icon was missing. I have attatched a picture so you can see exactly what I am talking about. If anyone knows how to fix this it would be GREATLY appreciated.

A:Windows 7 - USB Icon not showing up

hi Alex, and welcome to sevenforums,

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.

try this - and let us know if it worked.

you may have to reboot after doing it.

Go into the properties of those and see if the icon is there in change icon and if it is try changing it to something else and then change it back and see if that fixes it.
