  1. Windows keeps changing my personalized icons


    Hi, I personalized some icons associated to multimedia file extensions (movies, music and pictures), but the problem is Windows randomly (basically once every two months) cancel these icon associations to force its own default icons. I don't even know how it can happen since there is no recent update in Windows Update history...

    Is there a way to prevent Windows to change personalized icons?

    Thanks

  2. My icons keep changing, why?

    For some (very odd) reason, my icons keep changing from one to another. Sometimes the IE icon has the Windows Media player icon and vice verse.

    I have run ESET since I thought it to be a virus.. It's not. Could it be that my HDD is losing it?

    Desktop Icon Keeps On Moving

    That's because your resolution is changing each time. To test, try setting to 1024x768, arrange a couple of icons and then restart the PC. As long as the resolution after startup is still 1024x768, then the icons won't move. Trust me. *Wink Windows keeps changing my personalized icons ;)
