    some icons are changed every time update is preformed


    Hi,

    Every time updates are preformed the icons I had changed (for Word, Excel, etc....) are returned to their original and the library icons that I had hidden on in the "My Computer" window are turned back on again.

    Is there a way to have the updates run and not change these settings?

    Hi Artoo,

    How are you changing the default icons of these programs, are they on the desktop being changed only?
    Using a program to do this ? Talking any windows update is doing this ?

    I use Windows 7 Manager by yamicsoft to change the icons. both the icons in the explorer windows and the desktop are being changed. They are changed with any windows update.

    This never happens just on a reboot ? Only when an update is put in, sounds kind of strange for this to occur on updates for Windows 7. How often ? Say how often an update is going in. I would check with help from this program then on there site.

    Myself,i never used this program when i had Windows 7, possible a setting within this program, how you are exactly doing it.
    Say desktop icons or within program folder .exe icons.

    Now i find this program good for doing this, plus you can make docks on your desktop to eliminate clutter regularly for $9.99 U.S
    ObjectDock? - Animated Dock For Your Shortcuts And Widgets
    Or this one just for icons IconPackager - Custom Windows Icon Themes

    Again not familiar with this program i would seek help from there help sites or (forums).

    Oh its not just me then. I had custom icons on my desktop; eg: those created by the originator, and all have changed to a windows or browser default. Its a bloody nuisance and I tend to do visual search when on desktop as opposed to reading. Even my damn bank is no longer the right icon.

Hi Everyone, After upgrading my ASUS X102BA DF040H from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, my system tray icon takes time to load (more than 2 minutes or sometimes not) such as Realtek HD Audio Manager, ASUS Smart Gesture, and ASUS USB Charger Plus during startup. I have already installed the latest...
Quite happy with Win 8 Pro but just one little niggle has reared its head. After a couple of days uptime my tray icons in the hidden pop up are turning into white squares, which makes them hard to identify. I tried rebuilding the icon cache as found here, Icon Cache - Rebuild - Windows 7 Help...
I upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 8 Pro and have had nothing but problems ever since. Programs that ran fine under Win 7 won't even load under Win 8. Programs like Internet Explorer won't load and even when you get it to load you will have multiple instances of it running. Windows Live Mail...
