FIX: Icons not displaying correctly

What is the icon cache and why should I reset it?

If you have one of your icons that are not displaying as they should or are corrupt this might happen because your Icon Cache isn’t working correctly. Windows uses a Database file where it keeps all of the icons as a copy so instead of reading them out from their original place it has one place to get all of the icons, this makes windows show the icons faster.
