Suspect kids have been fiddling and now our desk top icons and task bar icons have changed from the original settings to now looking like a folder with a magnifying glass over it? It seems to be mainly on files that have been downlowed and put onto the desk top not icons like 'My Computer or Microsoft Works' etc. Also on the task bar the symbols for example 'email and internet etc' connections are now white boxes with a blue band across the top?. 'Show Desk top' is the only one in it's orginal setting. We have a Compaq Presario with ME. It does not stop us from doing anything, but don't like the look of it and not recognisable without having to place the mouse onto each box.

If the folders are shortcuts then right click on the folder and select change icons which will take you to a window full of choices,select then apply.
For a bit more personalisation i download icons to a folder and select from there.
you can find heaps of sites with free downloadable icons.
i like a kiwi guys site which has some beautiful nz/maori icons
adds your own flavour to an otherwise boring desktop
