I mostly use LibreOffice (a fork of OpenOffice that in my opinion looks better) and I have OpenOffice too (don't ask why). I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-Bit, I use ViGlance to get the Windows 7 style taskbar. But I know thats not the problem because when I use the regular taskbar it does the same thing.

 

Here is whats happening; When I go to open OpenOffice or LibreOffice both of the icons are the PeaZip icons for some reason. I even tried uninstalling PeaZip then LibreOffice and reinstalling LibreOffice after I uninstalled it. It still did it when I went to open it up, can someone help me?

Could be that your icon cache database has not updated properly.

 

Click on Start and enter the following in the search box, followed by Enter.

 

%userprofile%\AppData\Local

 

Locate the file IconCache.db and delete it.

 

Clear out your temp files and restart your system.

I know this sounds like a stupid question, it might be. But where are my temp files located? Aren't they in %temp%? If so that folder doesn't even exist in my computer. And sould I make a backup of IconCache.db before I delete it? Just to be safe.

Use Disk Cleanup under Accessories 》System Tools on the Start Menu to delete your temp files.

The icon cache will be recreated when you restart the system, so no need to keep it - especially as it's probably corrupted.

Nevermind, I was not entering the right thing; I was entering "%temp$%" by accident.

Wow, 27 Gigabytes of memory was freed when I cleaned it out! I cleaned out the temp files not too long ago...

Windows puts temp files in several locations, which is why you need a cleaner utility to do the work for you.

Didn't work, I think this might just be hopless... 

 

 

Any other ideas?

Uninstall OpenOffice, LibreOffice and Peazip. Clean out your temp files.

Install LibreOffice or OpenOffice, but not both, and then Peazip. Does this help. There is no benefit to having LO & OO installed.

Ok, I uninstalled PeaZip to try something first because I thought "if you take out the source of the problem, then there is no problem". So I uninstalled PeaZip and cleaned the temp files, and it worked! Reinstalled PeaZip and it still worked! Now the icons are correct, Yay!

 

 

EDIT: I am still going to uninstall OpenOffice though.
