G4 makes icons disappear


Recommended Posts

Windows XP


Playing Geneforge 4 makes all the icons in my desktop, start menus, and Windows Explorer disappear--no placeholder icon, just nothing. Restarting the computer makes some return, but not all (those that remain missing are at least replaced with a placeholder icon).


Ideally, it would be nice if they didn't disappear, but I would settle for being able to get them all back when I want them.

Make sure you go to the Processes tab and check to see if explorer.exe is running first. Otherwise, attempting to launch Windows Explorer again will just result in a browsing window popping up. If explorer.exe is still running, right-click on it and select End Process. Confirm ending the process, and follow Sullest's instructions from there.
