Desktop Icons Display Screwy

  Ms_Dial 00:38 05 Apr 2008

I'm running WinXP sp2 on an emachines T5212. Yesterday most of my desktop icons stop displaying their normal graphics and are showing a white squared icon with a blue bordered top that I do not like. I've tried System Restore and changing the desktop theme then tried Display Prop - Desktop - Customize Desktop and through here was able to get my Recycle Bin and My Computer icons to display properly but the rest? Nada. They still look ugly; see pic a href="click here">here /a>.

What can I do to fix this?

Do the icons still work when clicked on?
Get TweakUI click here, select Repair, make sure "Rebuild Icons" is showing in the box, click Repair Now

Yes, the icons still functioned, just their display graphic was problematic. Thank you very much for the Tweak suggestion, it worked and they're fixed now! :)
