A freind's PC running w98, IE6 & OE6. Whenever OE is accessed some, or all of the following shortcuts sometimes appear on the desktop:
outbox.dbx sent items.dbx offline.dbx folders.dbx
These are all un-associated icons (have the windows logo). His desktop was covered in em! I deleted all of them & everything was OK untill I used OE - then they started to re-appear. Anyone seen anything like this before?
He is also having problems in general with internet connections dropping after a few minutes - but I'm working on that one!
ran sfc + IE repair - also re-installed IE from the latest Freeserve disk (he's already on Freeserve). Have also de-fragged & run scandisk, am beggining to think I may have to re-format & start from scratch (not a bad thing as he's tried to install 2 joysticks unsuccessfully & goodness knows what else!!! - lol)
Have you tried the tweak UI tool to repair icons from click here top one in the list unzip then right click on .inf file choose install it resides in Control Panel you can repair system files also with it
