Some of the icons on my Desktop have switched to their default display.
This has only just happened after doing some virus and widows updating. Only some of the desktop icons are affected e.g. Nokia PC Suite, Itunes & Roxio Easy Media Creator. One other icon is sometimes there and then its not. It's as if a limit has just been reached.
I used Restore and the icons came back. But after a while having to repeat updating, the problems returned.
I notice that the proper icons are there in the Program Files folder, but not on the Desktop.
How do I get the correct icons displayed back on the Desktop?
I was reluctant to do this without knowing the possible cause, however I did as you suggested by hunting down the Target executable file in 'Program Files' and the icon was there to pick. So job done. Perhaps I shouldn't worry too much why unless it happens again.
