Operating System Version: Windows Me version 4.90.3000
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:

The icons next to the window titles are just black squares, so are the icons next to the start button along with many in my favorites menu and other parts of my computer.  I have also got and error messages a week or so before the black boxes appeared trying to uninstall a program, cannot find program.exe, so I couldn't uninstall the program.  Any help will be much appreciated.

If the icon cache becomes corrupt then the wrong icons may be shown.
To clear the icons cache make sure you can view hidden files (Windows Explorer Options) and then open your Windows directory in Explorer and delete the file called "ShellIconCache".

When you restart Windows the icon cache file will be automatically recreated.

See for more details.
