    In Mac HD > System > Library > Preference Panes I was trying to make aliases to put on the dock.

    Somehow I managed to change all the icons so they all look like a little grey cog.

    I can't find how to get them back again. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    If you look in your home directory, in the Library/Caches folder, you will find a file called

    com.apple.preferencepanes.cache

    Close the System Preferences program. Then delete this file and empty the trash. Then reopen your System Preferences. See if the problem is fixed.

    Many thanks for the idea - I tried it, but without luck. Appreciate the time you took to reply ;-)

    All my icons look like this:
