Have you looked in Devices to see if there are any yellow exclamation marks?

Also running click here in its default form, might fix it.

Hi .
I have checked in devcie manager and all is OK No yellow exclamation marks, I have also checked the registry for Drive Icon and it is also missing.

Have you run Ccleaner as above?

Or even, try a System Restore back to when they were showing correctly.

Download and install tweakui for Windows XP. It has a function to rebuild the icon cache.

Thanks for your reply Marv. Tried it but it did not work. I think this is going to be a stinker

The restore issue isn't valid because this problem has been far longer than I can remember. I also tried CCleaner but no result
