    Icons

    I have created new Icons on my desktop for certain websites and have set
    pictures for them as an icon. Four of the icons, are not working properly
    because their pictures are not showing and instead it is just showing a page
    with the Internet symbol infront of it. I have tryed to resolve the problem
    by going into the properties and re-setting the icons picture and I have
    tryed deleting and recreating the icon with the picture. Both of these did
    not help and my problem remians un-resolved. If anyone has any information on
    how to resolve this problem, please notify me as soon as possible. Thanks! -

    Re: Icons

    This solution has been posted before and seems to work. Try method two
    first, and if that's not enough, use method one.
    Icon Cache - Rebuild

    This one is essentially the same:
