  3. Start Menu Folder Icons are being weird.

    1) This usually happens when a program that I install or remove has a start menu entry...

    2) I've noticed it for a while, but can't put an exact date to it.

    3) The only real troubleshooting step I've taken is restarting my PC, and this fixes the issue, until "See 1."

    Start Menu Folder Icons are being weird.

    We appreciate the screenshot you included. Rebuilding icon cache may help us resolve the issue. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Command Prompt.
    • Copy and paste each command below one at a time into the command prompt, and press
      Enter after each command.
      • ie4uinit.exe -show
      • taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
      • DEL /A /Q "%localappdata%\IconCache.db"
      • DEL /A /F /Q "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\iconcache*"
      • shutdown /r /f /t 00
    Note: Performing the steps above will involve killing explorer and restarting the PC. We suggest saving anything that you're working on before proceeding.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.
