    Taskbar icons.

    On occasion my icons in my task bar change from their original icon to the blue MS icon. The only way I can restore them is to reboot. I have done a Google search for an answer but found nothing that will work. Is there something I can do to stop this?

    I think those symptoms are the same as:

    Disappearing taskbar icons. If your taskbar's icons vanish or keep changing, the reason is probably that Windows' icon cache memory is exhausted. To fix this, enlarge the fixed size of your icon cache:

    Thank you Alan for your reply. I did what you posted and will get back to you if it holds or changes them again.
    I also saved the fix on a word doc.
