Many of my files have suddenly changed their icons.
Instead of the default icons, they now display something else. That 'something else' varies with each file type but is consistent for each type of file. i.e. all .doc files, for example, have been given the Internet Explore icon, all .htm files have been given an icon from another programme, etc.
The only files affected seem to be text based (ie things like jpg's, gif's etc are not affected) and the new icon only seems to be related to a programme that would access the internet.
The wrong icon only displays within the folder each file is stored in. If the file is opened the correct icon is in the title bar.
Any idea what's caused this and how do I re-assign the correct icons (or the ones I actually want to use)?
