Problem

Sometimes, all the taskbar icons turn blank. Yes, just like that! This has happened to me a couple of times and I am not able to figure out the reason behind it.

Solution

Since I cannot figure out the reason behind this problem, I use the brute force solution of killing all Explorer instances and recreating it. For details, see the solution in this post.
