    Log on screen not showing icons


    The logon screen on my computer is not showing the icons for switch user, power, ease access, etc. The only thing I've done recently is uninstalled some fonts. Thinking this may have caused the problem, I reinstalled them but I'm still having this problem. Any suggestions.

    Hello Nick, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Running a sfc /scannow command may be able to help.

    Thanks for the tip. I ran the scan and it found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. I've looked at the cbs.log but don't have a clue what it means.

    Check to see if the items listed in the blue note box at the bottom of Option Two may be able to help SFC to repair them afterwards.

    I had that happen before where the icons aren't showing. what happened is that the font got replaced by a certain application and you need to reinstall the old font. I can't remember which font it is, but you can google it and how to replace it, which is how I fixed mine
