Can you try selecting one of the all-white icons on a Explorer window and see what appears on the status area (i.e., the bottom of the Explorer window)?

If you are experiencing the case (1), the left most info on the status area should be the filename (as opposed to the book title) and a default file type name "AZW File". If it is the case, I'd recommend to uninstall both K4PC and MobiHandler, then reinstall them (or, K4PC only) again.

If you are experiencing the case (2), the left most info on the status area should be the book title (as opposed to the filename) and the book author. If it is the case, I have currently no solution to the case (it is my #1 priority issue at the moment), but one of the following may help:
  • Cleanup the disk. (See the previous post for details.)
  • Ctrl-click (i.e., Press a "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and click with left mouse button while holding down the "Ctrl" key) on the "Refresh" command icon (two small green circular arrows, located just right to the address bar) of the Explorer window.
  • Restart the Windows.
of the 110 book file icons 30 don't display covers, 85 do display covers, 5 are tpz) and the book name appears (not the file name) in all azw icons. my C: drive has no cleanup button!!! ok, found it in programs->accessories->system tools and ran it, no joy however!!
