Faulty desktop icons

  electroplater 15:50 14 Jan 2008

Running XP Pro with sp2 and up to date Updates.
When the desktop loads the icons are all generic and then change sequentially to the program specific icons.
This happened first about two weeks ago and the same thing happens each time windows loads.
Any help would be appreciated.

Do a defrag, make sure your desktop background (if you use one) is not a huge BMP file. If it is, use Irfanview to reduce it to actual desktop dimensions and 256 colours. click here
