Re: All my Vista help files are missing graphics
I tried this and the result showed verification 99% complete, windows
resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix them. Detail
are included in the cbs.log
I found the log, but try as I might, I can't do anything with it!
Although the post above from Dave has fixed the icon issue, I'm now
wondering about the result of running sfc /scannow. The result was the same
both before and after running png.reg
