    I'm having a wierd problem, Every time I change the icons on my desktop (My Computer, Recycle Bin etc) and restart my PC the icons change back to the defaults :confused:
    I tried different icons from different sets and it keeps happening.
    Thanks in advance :)

    Have you "locked" your desktop?

    Nope, but maybe getting one will fix it, will try that.
    By the way I forgot to mention that sometimes (for different icons and randomly) I get a "not a valid windows image" error but the icon still changes to what I want (untill the next restart that is :p).

    The really wierd thing is that it used to happen to me before I formated the PC (about 2 months ago) but I dissmised that becuase the PC was generally ****ed up... Now its happening again :(

    Good idea, I'll give it a go.

    Edit: Didn't work :( Something is rotten in the kingdom of Bennymark.
