Refresh Windows 7 Icon Cache

When Modified Icons Don’t Change Appearance

This is a real pain in the butt when you are testing installs with new application icons or are designing icons and they don’t show up differently on the desktop.

taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
cd %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local
del /a IconCache.db
start explorer

Your icons will now be smiling back at you with their fresh new faces.
