Ok - My icons have suddenly gone blank. My desktop seems to be ok, but program icons have been wiped. All I see now is blank squares. They ID themselves when I scroll over them, and activate when clicked.....but they're all blank.

Nope. It seems to be specific about which icons it will allow to be shown. Example: If you open Start / will show you nothing on any icon, although it will tell you what the icon is if you roll over it - and it also has the text next to it as well.
My desktop icons are not affected by this - only the ones in my tool bar and Start menu.

If that doesn't work, download TweakUI (Part of the Microsoft
Powertools available on their site).

Within TweakUI there is an option to rebuild icons/rebuild icon
cache (can't remember which).

Worth a try!
