Windows Start menu icon problem

Hi Guys

I've lost the proper icons for most of my programs in the Windows XP Start menu. All I'm getting is a generic 'ico' symbol. I've tried 'right click, properties' but the change icon option is greyed out. Any ideas how to get the proper icons back.

Get TweakUI and choose the repair icons option:

I don't know why but the problem seems to have been caused by ACDSee v7. I've uninstalled ACDSee and all icons have now reverted back to normal...

Thanks for your input
