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)
