    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.

    :)

    Thank you for the reply. A screen shows 'run autorun.bat' or open folder to view files (file explorer) or take no action.
    The first two show a blank black screen except for No viewer was found. Quit. top of screen says sys 32/cmd.exe.

    Nothing works.

    You could try running sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt.
