    File Explorer is Blank????


    The problem is that everything is blank. When I try to open it to upload a picture in places like discord or here, it works fine, but when I open File Explorer on its own it has this issue. I've tried to go to the "view" menu and reset defaults, I've tried a command prompt file scan, and I tried to just restart my computer. Please help

    :)

    Icon for cmd.exe blank in File Explorer


    The icon for cmd.exe is a blank file as in the image.

    You can see the icon is correct in the properties window.

    This is a recent clean install of windows about a week ago. Not sure when they changed but I do remember having the icon correct after the initial install. I've followed the instructions to rebuild icon cache for Windows 10 at http://www.howtogeek.com/232779/how-...in-windows-10/. It did not work.

    Any suggestions would be great.
