Weird problem: application icons over-laid with hard-drive icons

Discussion in 'IBM' started by Mike Schneider, Oct 31, 2004.

  1. I have a Windows ME system on a network which has recently suffered
    oine or two odd problems:

    1. All of my aplications AND document (but not folder) icons are now
    overlaid, automaticaly, with hard-drive icons. Sometimes the screen
    will re-draw and they'll temporarily disappear; but they'll reappear a
    short time later (and after restarts).

    2. My other machines are no longer able to access the machine on the
    network, although they, and the affected machine itself, are able to
    get on the internet just fine.

    -- It doesn't appear to be virus- or spyware-related.

    What's going on?

    1. Search the web for the word "ShellIconCache", perhaps combined with
    "windows me", and you'll find some ideas to try.

    2. Don't know.

    Have you tried to update your spyware and check to see if your antivirus has
    an update. also check to see if there are any Operating system updates from
    Microsoft.COuld How much ram does your system use and how many processes you
    have running in your computers back ground.

    Let me know
