    system icons


    All of a sudden this morning my folder icons are gone in windows explorer and in the control panel.
    I opened up the control panel and everything is gone, it just say the page failed to load.
    I can't get into anything in the control panel.
    argh

    I am running Windows 8 pro - I downloaded the upgrade then did a clean install on a new hard drive, following the instructions I found on this site. I am running classic shell and decor8.

    I searched for topics on this and also I searched for folder icon customizing apps or programs for w8, I came up blank so far. What I find most worrying is my control panel icons and functions seem to be gone. I can still see them in the drop down menu but when I click on them it says page failed to load. Right now I clicked on devices and printers and the page loaded except for the icons. I can double click on my printer icon (area) and it takes me to my printer page.

    any suggestions?
    my plan is first to uninstall decor8 then classic shell and see if it comes back. After that I'm not too sure.

Hello All, I seem to be having an issue with the System UI on Windows 8.1. This is a fresh installation with only a few extras installed. Some select system UI icons have been replaced with rectangles, and is getting to be quite a nuisance. The photos point out only a few of them that show up...
