This is my First self-written Programm.
It deletes the IconCache.db and Restarts the Explorer.
You must Start it in Administration Mode.
If You find any Bugs write me a note or leave a comment.
Edit: Version 0.7b is out!

Untested on Windows Vista and XP, but should also work.


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)

Thanks for it, have searched a while and fould this little prog here ^^
Tested with Win10x64. More trouble with that system as in previous versions from MS ~

Only one point. I see backups created automatically. Function to disable exist or its process based and not possible? (without an extra delete function) Maybe with checkbuttons or so...
Thats my only suggestion. It's good as it is ;]
