Weird icons in my Windows 7


New Member
About a week ago these weird "cd box" image started to show up as a miniature icon on other programs (see picture).
If that wasn't enough, my Winamp player icon shows as Security EssentialS !?!?! (second from right bottom corner)

Anyone have any idea whats going on here? It's not fatal for my work on this comp, but it sure is annoying.

no one knows? :(

I've had some confusion like this with past versions of windows and rebooting straightened it out.

Do the programs open as they should?

When you right click on the incons and select properties and click on change icons... what's the path show?

Did you do a clean install or update Vista?

Run Windows Explorer and go to the desktop folder in your user profile and see if they are also confused there.. Flip through your "change view" menu.

Any other info you can profide?
