    I am a Windows 7 user, and I had some problems with my pc yesterday. The Icons in the moveable disc fields all changed to look like Free Agent K. I don't know how it happened, and didn't know how to fix it when I was done with the HP tech. She was helping me with a printer problem.

    I use 64-bits.

    Thanks in advance

    I would check for malware first. Do a complete scan with your AV app, then install MalwareBytes anti-malware and run a complete scan.

    I have an Icon repair batch file that might help. Paste the lines below into Notepad, save as a .bat file to your desktop and run it:

    @echo off
    cls
    echo The Explorer process must be killed to delete the Icon DB.
    echo Please SAVE ALL OPEN WORK before continuing
    pause
    taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F
    echo Attempting to delete Icon DB...
    If exist %userprofile%\AppData\Local\IconCache.db goto delID
    echo Previous Icon DB not found...trying to build a new one
    goto :main
    :delID
    cd /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
    del IconCache.db /a
    pause
    echo Icon DB has been successfully deleted
    goto main
    :main
    echo Windows 7 must be restarted to rebuild the Icon DB.
    echo Restart now? (Y/N):
    set /p choice=
    If %choice% == y goto end
    echo Restart aborted...please close this window
    explorer.exe
    :end
    shutdown /r /t 0
    exit


    Don't know if this will fix your problem, but it did mine.
