All of a sudden when you boot your Windows computer you may see X marks or some unusual marks on Windows icons. There is a way to fix this.

    This is because Windows icons are corrupted. You need to delete icon cache and rebuild it.

    You may do this ta your own risk:
    1. Open Command prompt
    Type the following at the prompt:
    ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache
    taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
    DEL “%localappdata%\IconCache.db” /A
    DEL “%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\iconcache*” /A
    shutdown /r /f /t 00

    The last command line would restart the computer.
