    Question Windows 10 UWA Apps icons all change to Irfanview icons

    Hi everyone, this is my first post.

    I did some searching earlier and I saw posts relating to Windows Explorer icons

    However this relates to Universal Windows App icons, I have attached some images to show.

    In this image, Alarms & Clock appears fine

    I have no idea how to fix it. I removed all irfanview file associations and then custom set them myself, and I cleared the Windows icon cache. Please help because this is really annoying.

    Same here on Windows 10 1809, IrfanView 4.53 64-bit.. I notice that specifically it is using the PCX icon.

    Oh my god someone else with this issue. Have you managed to find a solution? I cleared the icon cache and stuff, but nothing's worked so far.

    It drives me insane.

    Same problem, ugly red icon remains for all programs in Start Menu even after complete uninstall with registry cleanup. How do I get rid of this nasty trash?
