If your PC is clean of viruses etc. and is running normally with no other probs maybe someone has mischieviously renamed them that way.

What happens if you rightclick and Rename them yourself? Does it reverse what you type as the new name?

Do you mean backwards as in a mirror image or simply the names typed backwards eg sdrawkcab ?

Try getting TweakUI and choosing the optioin to repair icons.
