Weird problem, haven't seen this before really. Basically, on this system, most all of the XP icons, which I refer to as "shell icons", have the wrong text on them. In other words, here is a list of some of the icons I'm talking about: My Computer (desktop and start menu locations) My Documents, My Music, My Videos (desktop and start menu) Recycle Bin Also when you right click the desktop and choose New-> a few are messed up in there as well, such as Briefcase and Compressed Folder. In the Send-To menu, items like My Documents are also messed up. The problem is that, instead of showing "My Documents" with the icon, the text is something like "c:\windows\system32\shell32.dll,-8943". They are ALL like that, with a different 4 numbers at the end. I was able to fix the My Documents and My Computer by showing thost icons on the desktop, and then renaming them. This fixed the desktop location and the start menu location. But not like the Send-To location. I can not rename Recycle Bin or briefcase or compressed folder etc... I even went into the registry to the recycle bin area and checked the name, and it is correct in there, but still shows bad on the desktop. I've tried researching this but can't really even tell what I should be searching for. In any case, this needs fixed, because the system throws errors if you try to use New-> or SendTo-> on one of these, it pops up saying "Incorrect Parameters" or even "Invalid Function". Rather then attempt to fix the names one by one, this somehow feels like it is a global problem affecting all these XP shell icons. 3rd party programs are not affected, their text is normal. So I have no idea how to globally fix why all these icons are showing a bad name like that with shell32.dll showing instead of the correct text. Any ideas?
