Corrupted Icon

Recommended Posts


I love this program, but i have a minor issue.

I am running the free version in win7 64 on a new PC i just built last week. I have a corrupted icon. The icon looks generic and white. Its not even close to the MWB icon, not red, etc.

I uninstalled, reinstalled, and it didnt help.

I deleted the icon on the quick menu and the folder in the program menu.

Then i went into the explorer folder and i see that the main application file icon is also messed up.

Is there any way to fix this?

The program runs fine. Just the icon is messed up.

A few days ago it found a trojan and deleted it no problem.
