    Has the paint icon been there the whole time? Is that a link to a website?

    If you right click one of the dreamweaver icons and select open with, what does it show as a program? If it doesn't show anything, can you browse to the dreamweaver .exe file and select it to open then choose "always use"?

    I will assume all your other icons are normal.. The fact is only happens in normal mode probably means something is starting up that is overriding or changing the icon relationship.
