I used to have problems with icons for text file "wandering" apparently
randomly (Win98). X-teq setup ( http://www.xteq.com/ ) has an option to
specify the size of the Shelliconcache file. I set mine to 1000 (I think the
default was 512) and the problems have not reoccurred. Here's what their
comments say about this option:
>>Every icon accessed by Windows is cached in the file 'ShellIconCache'. Ifthis file exists, Windows reads the icons from the cache instead of
searching for the actual files, which speeds up access time significantly,
especially at bootup.
In certain cases a (too) small cache size leads to an incorrect display of
This setting specifies how many icons should be cached, the default value
(also the minimum) is 500 icons, and theoretical maximum is 2000, but on
some systems it is possible to increase this number up to 8000.
You need to restart your computer if you change this setting, and sometimes
more than once, until the new icon cache 'catches on'. :<<
