    Icons not working


    Hi, I am having a problem with the Windows 8 icons not working on apps etc. They are just squares and not sure how to fix it. Anyone know how to?

    Here are some pics:

    Hello Kyle, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Has this just recently started?

    For now, you might see if running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help.

    Since this has just started, you could do a system restore using a restore point (if available) dated before this started to hopefully undo and fix this.

    Do you have an older restore point available?

    You could also refresh Windows 8, but you'll need to reinstall your desktop programs again afterwards.
