my icons have changed

  palinka 19:04 11 Nov 2004

It's happened suddenly - all my Word files have lost their usual icon (blue W etc)and are now represented by folders with symbol on them resembling the "my pictures" symbol - ie 3 postcards/photos fanned out. They still open as Word docs. Docs saved as RTF look the same as normal. What have I or what has someone done to me?

This can happen from time to time, usually not as a result of anything you've done to the computer.

To fix it download Tweak UI from click here

install it, run it, select the bottom option (Repair) then select Rebuild Icons from the drop down and click Repair Now

You can also rebuild your icons from within Regseeker click here. This is under the Tweaks tab.

thanks everyone.
When I restarted everything returned to normal, but I've made a note of your links for future reference.
