=D

Works with Windows 7 32/64bit
Untested on Windows Vista and XP, but should also work.

Edit:

Thanks for so much Comments...
I have to say some things:

:bulletblue: The IconCache.db is responsible for the Icons that you exchange.
That means if You replace an Icon of an shurtcut it wont be changed immediately. You have to delete the iconcach.db for that mannually.

:bulletblue: I have to give some people here right, who say that you can use CCleaner or such programms.
BUT, many of those programms aren´t freeware and/or overloaded.
This is just an help for an simply Job you can also do manually but not so easy.

:bulletblue: Yeah this programm is a little bit Pointless and you can do all those Jobs mannualy but its my first Application and I only wanted to solve my own personal problems easier.

:bulletblue: I want you to have an simple, portable, freeware and not overloaded Application for this Progress

:bulletblue: No the IconCache.db wont be rebuild. It only will be deleted. But the IconCache will be "rebuild". (I say that cause Iconcache deleter sounds like this Application is going to destroy your icon Cache =D)

I recently installed an icon pack (token) which has replaced all my system/personal files etc with the token icons, but if i use your program will it restore the icons to default?
Reply
:iconscreeny05:
screeny05 Featured By Owner May 22, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
i dont think that the token icon installer makes a backup nor i think that it will restore your old icons... I even think that the token installer deletes the iconcache.db

Why are some of you giving this guy so much crap? Its his first program, and its a stand-alone app that doesn't carry all of the other hard-to-understand baggage of ccleaner, tweakui and other programs. This is great for a novice user. I think it was a much needed utility! I hope it ends up on askvg.com and featured on windows groups throughout deviantart for all the noobs who need it.

And eluvator, it is rebuilding because when the explorer process restarts, explorer automatically rebuilds iconcache.db.

And fedia, being the windows enthusiast that you are, you outta support those who are not power users by supporting programs like this. The UI is simple and to the point despite following the three button trend. If it had two buttons, he would have to sacrifice the backup delete button, which wouldn't make sense because a novice user wouldn't be able to delete them without step by step instructions. And if it had four buttons, what else would you put? Everybody says make a backup of everything, so, this program follows suit.

hum why? and how is this rebuilding? isn't this just deleting a file? which you can do with CCleaner?... or dose this do more like rebuild and you just didn't state that?

you write 'em in C++ or C# or stuff like that :o

microsoft visual studio has all those options...

but i think rainmeter uses something way more primitive, not sure what though. seems like xml files.

Because those programs are simple to handle. No overloaded GUI where you gotta search for X hours just to find a specific function.
