Disappearing Icons

Garrett Rooney:

For some reason both Photoshop Elements and Acrobat Reader have both managed to lose their icons on my powerbook.

I’ve been having this problem on my computer at work and, after reading Garrett’s posting, discovered the same issue with a file on my laptop. Following Louissuggestion, along with clearing the various Caches folders, and my missing icons came back.

I think I already tried clearing the Caches folders on my system at work, so I suspect it was Louis suggestion to remove the ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.LaunchServices.plist file that turned the tide. I’ll confirm this at work, but I’m just happy to have my real icons back.

Oh yes, Garrett has made the switch to TypePad — his blog is now available at http://asdf.blogs.com/ I’ve updated my mini-blogroll accordingly.
