This will correct problems relating to black or incorrect icon displayed in Win9x, WinME and WinXP.

If you delete the icon cache, Windows automatically rebuilds a clean one. In Windows 98 and Windows Me, delete the hidden file ShellIconCache found at "c:\windows\ShellIconCache". In Windows XP, delete the file "IconCache.db" found at "c:\documents and settings\USERNAME\local settings\application data\IconCache.db" (where USERNAME is your account name).

Also, if the cache needed by all your icons exceeds the shellicon cache, you end up with incorrectly displayed icons.
To add the option to increase or decrease the shellicon cache, extract and run the file below. The option will be accessible by clicking Tools > Folder Options > View tab in the Advanced Settings section for "Icon Cache Size", the default will be set to "2048". If problem persist, increase to next option.

Right click and select Save Target As... then rename the file as shown here and save.
