No icon on tile after update. - April 12th 2014, 11:32 AM

I did the new Windows 8 update the other day and for some reason, two of the tile on the start menu no longer have the icons on them. They are the programs Word & Powerpoint. I've unpinned them and readded them but it didn't change anything, I've also opened them just in case that would help but it didn't.

How do I make the icons come back?

This has happened to my brother, but with Windows 7. It was all of his icons and it wasn't fixable, according to him. So I know what a bitch this can be.
Luckily, it doesn't look like you're alone, and it says on this website:
Quote:
Windows key + X, select Command Prompt (Admin) and type sfc /scannow and return. If it finds and repairs system files, run it again until no errors.

If this does not correct the situation, you have to do a Refresh install.
I hope this helps!

Ah, really? That's a bitch. Thanks anyway, I'll give that a try and see if it works.
