    Default is this a virus... :(

    Recently, I've noticed a strange thing - some icons are changing.
    Like the sometimes a file (say.html) will have the Mircosoft Word icon, and then the next day it has the Medal of Honor game icon.
    This happens with all the icons (not just .html)
    I have norton AV - and have ran virus check - but nothing.

    Maybe it's an advertisement for a computer company. I can't think of their name. ;-) .

    Evening Alex,

    No I do not believe this is a virus. Sometimes icons displayed just go ramdom. Not to sure why. But this is how you fix it.

    Download TweakUI either from a Pcworld Plus disk or from

    Once installed
    load the control panel up and launched TweakUI. Click on the repair tab and again on repair Icons.

    This should do the trick

    Something similar happens to me:

    In my IE favorites menu it has icons from my Desktop.

    Normally it has the basic 'e' over a page icon now it has icons for My Computer and my documents icons etc.
