    Windows 8.1 x64 broken icons

    So, i noticed this bug long time ago, but now i decided to try to solve it, because i will be using this os for long time now. When i try to delete files or something, and when i get a windows to confirm my actions, there is a big icon on the left side, and that icon has a black line on it, how to remove it ? It doesnt matter which icon will be there, it will have this black like on its left side.
    Intel haswell graphics, core i7 cpu, everything works good, no files corruption or anything else. For many reasons i have installed windows 8/8.1 over 10 times, and all the time i get this broken icon bug...

    8.1 x64

    Same here. I think I read somewhere it's a 8.1 bug. Typical Windows: lots of small graphical glitches everywhere. They don't seem to care enough to fix it, or to make sure these things aren't released to begin with. Good thing they have at least accelerated GUI animations, no?

    Try Wise Care 365, it is supposed to fix things like that, use all 3 cleaners as in the screenshot.
    Basically it cleans cache, corrupted entries and such, so it might fix it, do not worry, it is safe.

Windows FAX broken in 8.1
Still broken. FAX send will hang/redial. Didn't work in 8.1PV - may have functioned in 8. The problem is FXST30.dll. Replacing it with the Windows 7 copy resolves it. This may require taking ownership. Someone here with Microsoft's ear might pass that along to the higher echelon.
