  2. What happened to my computer?

    Are the programs gone or just some of the icons to launch them? Possibly you got updated to version 1607 or had some other update install. Check through the program sections on the left of the Start menu to see if your software is actually still installed.
    It should also show up in Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs if it is still installed.

    Windows 10 Installation - Icons Will Not Display Properly

    Dear All

    I have sorted this problem in a slow but doable way. The removal of the IconCache (which I have done twice) has made no difference to the problem.

    1. To sort the icons for MS Office and CorelDraw I have found the executable files. (Somewhat strangely the MS Office 2010 executables are in the Office14 folder (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14).

    2. I have then created shortcuts for these (which have to be on the Desktop).

    3. I have cut them from the Desktop to the appropriate Start Menu folder (C:\Program Data\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Office).

    4. In the start menu folder I have opened the Properties for each shortcut and then changed the icon. (For some reason the Change Icon process has had to be gone through twice for the change to take effect).

    5. The icons now appear in the Start Menu tiles with the correct coloured icons!

    This is a messy and time consuming fix but it works.

    Geoff
