    Icon cache size (XP SP2 - updated)

    I've searched but I'm not finding what I wanted and I thought I'd read it here someplace! Is there a registry setting to set the icon cache? I seem to be having trouble with my desktop refreshing more times than I can for. I ran TweakUI to repair the icons but it hasn't helped. So I thought if I could set a larger icon cache size, maybe that'd take care of it - or am I not even remembering the information correctly? Thanks for any enlightenment!

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks for the link Bob. <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15> I set the data value for 2000. I'll see if that helps! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> Too bad this computer can't enjoy <img src=/S/coffeetime.gif border=0 alt=coffeetime width=32 height=48> It could probably stand a jolt of it! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Why can your computer NOT enjoy coffee ?!?!? <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    When I push the little gray button on the front of my computer, a coffee tray slides out <img src=/S/yikes.gif border=0 alt=yikes width=15 height=15>

    Sometimes the computer seems to shake just enough to try and STEAL my coffee <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>

    Bob,

    Just wanted to let you and the world know! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I guess I must have too many icons for the default setup to handle because the change of cache size seems to have taken care of my problem! <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15>

    An increase in cash usually takes care of most problems!

    I'm glad you said that John! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> You seem to be a very generous fellow - I could sure use some <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15> right now! <img src=/S/rofl.gif border=0 alt=rofl width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>
