Desktop refreshed itself and changed my Shortcuts!

  oo7juk 13:59 15 Sep 2003

Hi,Can anyone help.

The other day I was closing down a couple of programs at the same time and sometimes after the program has closed by desktop refreshes itself, normally not a problem. Only this time a lot of my icon's changed from e.g a game icon to just a basic prg icon. When I went to run these prg's they wouldn't work, during this refresh it has removed a lot of these prg's. I've had to install all over again. Something is not right here, any ideas. Your help is most appreciated.

1st thing to do with abnormal behaviour is virus scan online: click here and disable onboard av. What os are you?

Sometimes the shortcut icons can get corrupted, and if you have TweakUI try the Rebuild Icons option (under Repair).
