Suddenly, my Desktop Icons have all changed colour. Some are green and others are purple?

I've checked for malware/virus etc but nothing shows up.

Any ideas please.

Thanks

System Restore?

Tried System Restore. Doesn't work.

In fact I have never ever been able to get System Restore to work.

Try TweakUI click here

Repair > Rebuild Icons.

Have you looked in Control Panel, Display, Appearance, Advanced? Select Icons from the menu.

Is it switched on?

A System Restore normally occurs with installation/uninstallation of software and hardware or similar changes - alternatively it is done manually.

To repair system restore Start/Run/type sfc /scannow and hit enter. You will need your XP CD.
