How to: Fix the CCleaner Icon Deleter Issue

Recommended Posts

Why in the world did CCleaner get rid of all these icons on my computer?

None of the default image icons work on my Vista x64 Ultimate and a lot of other icons are missing.

Is there a fix for this?

I thought CCleaner was a respected app.

Are you able to use system restore to a time when your icons were there?

 

Are you able to do a repair of the icon cache?

 

Here a thread with some info on how to do that

Did you have any other problems as well?

 

It is not really something that CCleaner does as it is quite a safe app, (although at the moment I'm sure you don't feel that way!)

I have had the same issue arising--after downloading the latest version of CCleaner upon my Windows 2000 machine, and, installing it. Immediatel gone were almost...all icons--but, a handful. Then, after a Right-Click upon the Desktop, and, clicking Refresh--I did manage to get...MANY icons back, again. Gone were...dozens, however with ALL (almost) re-arranged in ways different from originally. And, since ALL OF the spacing and most of the locations had changed: maybe, some of them are off-page (somewhere...I don't know)?

 

Any...(all) "answers", appreciated (I haven't rebooted since this fresh...install--NOR, have I run the latest version...installed; only installing it).

 

God bless...always.

Hey...after my initial steps--having only four or five icons left after the CCleaner download and install--doing a Right Click upon the Desktop, and, doing a Refresh: bringing back some icons, different sizing and spacing with MANY missing items...1. I have found that putting a bunch of IE links (from off my Desktop)all into one...folder--creating SOME ROOM thereby--and, then, doing a Arrange Icons a couple of ways (I think; at least, by Type), I have them all...back, again!

 

The task of...re-arranging themselves (as before); for another...day, likely?

 

Thanks...always!!
