Lost all the "exe" icons off desktop & in start me

  Wulfrune 01:39 11 Dec 2006


I plugged my creative zen into my computer earlier today and everything froze up, so I had to hard reboot. WHen my computer rebooted I was left with all the desktop icons CHANGED to a little white rectangular icon with what looks like a little window inside with 3 coloured dots in it. WHen I try to open the file a box pops up saying "windows cannot open this file" file forefox exe.lnk
It then goes on to ask me if I want to search the web to find the appropriate service.

I was going to use system restore to help my out, but this has the same problem.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

click here and get the TweakUI powertoy - it has an option to repair icons so may do it for you.
