    Re: Issue with changing desktop icons randomly to different icons on Windows 7

    Yes, this is happening probably due to the icon cache is not properly updated on your system. You can avoid this issue by recreating ShellIconCache file again on your system. Nothing to do just follow the procedure because it will be recreated automatically after changing display color depth. You have to do small changes in settings then again change it to default.

    -> Go to properties by Right click on the desktop
    -> Go to settings option
    -> Now, change color depth from Highest to Lowest or, vice versa
    -> Tap on Apply and Yes to accept the changes
    -> Now, again change color depth to its default setting
    -> Same process, Tap on Apply and Yes to accept the changes

    Check your issue, it should be resolved now....
