    What colour depth are you running your desktop at? (Tells you in Display properties)

    few ways
    Delete the icon cache X:\Documents and Settings\XXX\Local Settings\Application Data (it will rebuild upon restart)

    Restore the dll (with the system icons) %SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll with a good one (from winxp cd)

    and maybe try tweakui - rebuild icons

    thats all i can think of in the moment.
