Why are my program icons disappearing?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
A lot of my program icon just turn into the generic icon, white paper with a window in it. Ive tried changing the icons, but the original doesn't show up.

As you can see, my icons for 3dMark06, CPUID HW, and maybe AMD Overdrive are missing. Ive searched for them. I even changed MSI afterburner and Fur mark so they're not ugly as ****. Help?

Try this then, right click, properties, Change icon, Hit browse and go to the programs .exe or .ico file and use that.
