couple of my XP desktop icons have changed.

  1. I was playing a game and quit out and noticed that the 'my computer' and 'internet explorer' icons on my desktop had suddenly changed .

    Hard to describe but they are the icons you get when you uninstall a program or game and you have this icon instead of the proper one .

    The icons still work properly but im a bit worried why this has happened , anyone had this before or know what might have caused it .

    im running XP with SP2 and all latest updates , Its a new dual core PC about 4 months old that i have had no trouble with .

    Download and install TweakUI from Microsoft's XP Power Toys. Run the icon repair feature
