Problems refreshing icons on desktop and system tray (Solution)

I have come across a problem with a few customers, at least a couple of machines, with the problem of not refreshing the System Tray ( right next to the clock wlEmoticon-winkingsmile.png ) and the desktop icons.


You can simply solve this problem by following the steps below.
Lets start,

To refresh system tray icons;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

find and delete IconStreams ve PastIconStream variables on the right pane,


Ctrl-Alt-Delete and open Task Manager, select explorer.exe under Processes and Finish Process.

Click Applications, select New Task, type explorer.exe and press Enter.

To refresh the desktop icons;

C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local
go to folder, delete the hidden IconCache.db file, and then restart the computer.



Access useful information from the SCCM’s DB #1

There were thousands of machines in the majority of the large companies I consulted and they wanted to follow these machines with SCCM. Reports that are available in the SCCM sometimes may not provide enough information. In such cases the solution comes with Microsoft SQL Management Studio. If you are a system administrator, you will find yourself writing SQL 🙂

Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 17

I’m not sure if I can help you write SQL, but I have a lot of ready-made SQL that my customers like a lot. I plan to share these with you one by one. Most of my customers wanted a report like the one below. I have changed the report according to the wishes of the years and I share the final status with you.

TS etkinleştimesini yaptınız, CAL’lar eklendi, fakat TS 120 günden geri saymaya devam ediyor veya 2 kullanıcıdan fazla kullanıcı oturum açmak istediğinde “bir kullanıcının oturumunu kapatın” diye uyarı alıyorsanız, bu sorunu aşağıdaki adımları uygulayarak çözebilirsiniz.

You have activated TS, you receive CALs added but Terminal Services continues to count down from the 120 days, or if you are prompted to “log out of a user” when more than 2 users want to log in, you can solve this problem by following these steps.
