    All Apps missing Icons


    Hi
    I have a Windows 8.1 x64 and for some time (I guess after the Update 1) my apps have no icon in the taskbar
    as you can see from the picture the exe files missing icons too and notifications are not working as well
    removing and installing again didn't help and some of these apps i installed recently
    any help would be appreciated

    Hi SaeedOmnia,

    Instead of reinstalling, why don't you just refresh Windows?

    Refresh Windows 8
