I didn't have the problem on Win2K but now that I've installed Windows XP Pro ( SP1 with all the updates since SP1 ) certain icons keep reseting to defaults. The icons in question are My Computer, Network Favourites, My Documents & the Recycle Bin. It only happens at a very specific moment which I shall now try to explain. :blackeye: I've disabled Fast User Switching on this machine ( no need for it & it removes the service from the startup once disabled ) & enabled the need to hit CTRL-ALT-DEL to login which also allows to lock the workstation ( HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\DisableCAD is set to 0 ). Now when I happen to lock the workstation after hitting CTRL-ALT-DEL, when I come back to the machine, the icons I mentionned above are back to the defaults. I've tried rebuilding the icon cache before but I still get the same problem. Any ideas ?
