I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell laptop. A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the desktop icons had been replaced by black squares. Increasing the size shows the program icon in the background but the black square remains. I've tried updating the drivers, run virus and malware scans but noting seems to work. Any suggestions?
Scroll down to near the bottom. I must point out that i have never used this program before so cannot comment on how good or bad it is.So maybe wait and see if anything else is recommended that will fix it first and only use as a last resort.
Another thing to try is to right click an icon, select properties,' change icon' tab, and in the window that opens it should show the default icon on a blue background. Select, ok, and apply tab. Click continue to give permission. Try with a couple of icons then reboot to see if the icons show properly. If they don't corrupt after a reboot do the same with all.
