  1. I just messed up the way my folders operate by accident, because I was trying to restore them to the regular windows XP folder theme, which was deleted when I downloaded something that changed the looks of all folder/file icons on the computer. I need help restoring this! When I click on a file folder, it opens winamp!! I cant restore this because theres no 'restore default' option!!! What if I overlap the shell32.dll file with one from another XP O/S?
