Corrupted/pixelated icons?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all,
For the past week or so, random icons either on my desktop or within other folders have been getting corrupted icons. (Screenshot attached, the recycle bin on the bottom right).
I wasn't sure whether to open this under Windows or the Nvidia (since it 'might' be related to video card?) but I thought it might be more Windows related.

Sometimes my wallpaper will also have complete lines of these pixels, but once I change my wallpaper, it goes away.

Any ideas guys? (The last time I fixed the pixelation by going into safe mode, which I assume reset the icon cache???)

Thanks a bunch!

Had a with a similar problem once. It was caused by a failing hard drive that was currupting data.

Check the S.M.A.R.T. statue of your hard drive? Do a disk check?
