Hold tight, talking to a colleague and we'll see if we change the icon back.

Solved possible fix??

Post by lcander on Sat Nov 20, 2010 2:01 am

I came across this while researching the problem, but wasn't sure if it would work and didn't want to try it if there was really still a problem with the machine.

3- Launch RegEdit from the Start menu's Run dialog and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\
CurrenTVersion\Explorer. If a subkey named driveicons is present, open it; You will find a subkey named C ,, Delete this subkey , this will return the C drive default Icon so the red icon will be gone.


Could this be a way to get the icon back??

It may, but the articles I read on that says to put the normal value back rather than delete it, that's why I'm asking some of the other helpers that work here. Smile

Solved In Safe mode

Don't know if this will help, but the normal Icon shows when in safe mode for both Administrator and the Owner.

When looking for more answers to this, I came across a post that suggested the the default icon file (IconCache.db) may be corrupted. They suggest deleting that file and restarting the computer. They thought this should cause the default HDD icon to return.

Solved Still there

Post by lcander on Tue Nov 23, 2010 4:19 pm

I tried the suggestion of deleting the IconCache.db file and the red X is still there. So that fix doesn't apply to this machine's problem.

Hello.
Lets try this, we'll make a backup of the registry first.

  • Please use the following link to download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Use the setup program to install ERUNT on your computer

Click Erunt.exe to backup your registry to the folder of your choice.

Note:to restore your registry, go to the folder and start ERDNT.exe

Please run OTL.exe.

  • Copy the commands with file paths below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):


    :reg
    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons\c]


  • Return to OTL, right click in the "Custom Scans/Fixes" window (under the light green bar) and choose Paste.

  • Click the red Run Fix button.
  • A fix log in Notepad will appear. Copy the contents of the fix log to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose copy), and paste it in your next reply.
  • Close OTL.exe
If a file or folder cannot be moved immediately you may be asked to reboot the machine to finish the move process. If you are asked to reboot the machine choose Yes.

You're brilliant!!!
That seemed to fix it. When I restarted the computer, the default icon is back.
Thanks so much.
