  1. Issue with Default My Computer Folder Icons


    I seem to have accidentally changed a few "My Computer" folder icons to a question mark symbol (Shown in the screenshot). I went into ‪C:\Users\[USER-NAME]\ and changed the folder icons through properties. It was successful, but only in the User folder. My icons are still incorrect under "My Computers" in Windows Explorer. When I go to properties in the folders on My Computer, I do not see the option to change the folder icons. I have also tried to clear the icon cache, and I was still unsuccessful. I think that the default for the icon may have been changed, and I do not know how to restore it.

  4. Issue with Default My Computer Folder Icons

    NIGHTMARE icon in windows taskbar

    Ok ... this is really an annoying thingy in Windows Vista that till today. My top wish list is to solve this !!! *Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:*Bang Head :banghead:

    See attached pic ... for eg. open My Computer ... icon is of course as shown - the My Computer default Vista icon ... after you browse? *swoosh* kind of black magic ... it changes to that icon with the green arrow ... browsing back to My Computer it remains like that ... with the green arrow!!!

    This happens to any and all folders ! ... When you load it ... it comes up with the default folder ... after exporing through folder it changes ... and remains like that.

    For info : have tried a fresh installation of Vista to make sure that no bug got in. So must be some DAMN Vista settings

    Thanks mates ... hope you enjoy this puzzle !
