icons not displaying on desktop or in All Programs after Windows 7 Update installed; get "basic" icons instead

have deleted IconCache.db and rebooted numerous times; added in a registry entry to increase the cache size, all to no avail; seems to be missing icon files in a windows install directory. What happened? How can i fix this?
