    Well i kind of decided to replace my finder icon [ manually ] :eek:

    I kept the original icon safe & have all the usual backups. My problem is that even after deleting the replacement icon & pasting back my original finder icon, i cant get it to update back to the original in my dock. My dock still shows it as the deleted replacement icon :?

    I have already tried:

    Code:
    sudo killall Dock
    &

    Code:
    sudo killall Finder
    But for some reason my dock still shows the replacement icon that i have already deleted & replaced back with the original...



    Any ideas appreciated thanks :)

    Apparently i need to locate & delete:

    Anyone care to help me locate this file, as i cant find it anywhere on my mac, even unlocking hidden files & folders doesn't help me locate or find it :?


    Also now when i try to open certain folders, or plist files i get the error / dialog from whats showing below...

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    ...Fixed the problem

    By locating "com.apple.iconcache" ...



    Finding this file is certainly not easy when using "finder" or "spotlight" but just type some code into terminal & you've got the address to your file...

    Code:
    sudo find /private/var -name *iconcache*
    ...Delete your "com.apple.iconcache" file & then use one last piece of code to restart your dock

    Code:
    killall Dock
