Icon Cache Rebuilder

Rebuild your icon cache with just a click.
Icon Cache Rebuilder is a simple application whose purpose is to restore the icon cache to your system. You can use it whenever your icons are not displayed accurately. First-time users can quickly learn how to this app works, thanks to its limited features and overall simplicity.

This is a portable piece of software. In other words, Icon Cache Rebuilder does not come with a setup pack, so you can run the executable file directly.

The main upside to this aspect is that you can save the tool to a USB flash disk or other removable device, in order to run it on any workstation with minimum effort and without prior installers.

Another important factor is that Icon Cache Rebuilder does not work with the Windows Registry area, thus leaving your database of entries intact. Plus, files are not left over on the hard drive after removing the app.

The traditional method of repairing icons which are not shown properly is by deleting the IconCache.db file from the computer, restarting Explorer's process and rebooting the computer. Icon Cache Rebuilder simply speeds up this procedure, without requiring any user intervention.

Its interface is made from a small window with two buttons. As there are no configurable parameters included, you simply need to click the "Rebuild" button. Icon Cache Rebuilder automatically does its job and restarts Explorer. The good news is that the tool does not automatically reboot the workstation, so you are not in danger of losing unsaved data.

Evidently, the application is low-demanding concerning the system resources. It carries out a task rapidly and without errors. We haven't come across any problems during our tests. All in all, Icon Cache Rebuilder is straightforward and without configurable parameters, yet a reliable utility that takes charge when it comes to restoring the icon cache to your OS.
