:tazz: Im having a problem with my PC lately, my icons that points to html files has been replaced with windows generic icons, the one that has a small picture in the middle. I can still open the html files though, but its kinda irritating seeing them looking like that. I suspect a virus, because I did a full system scan last week and found a redlof in my system, the anti virus was able to do its job (i think) because i did another scan last night and it didnt found any.
Is there any way to restore my icons? Any help is greatly appreciated ;)

several ways.

1) install an alternate browser (mozilla firefox), let it become the default browser, then load IE again, and allow it become the default browser again.

2) Open explorer, go to TOOLS > FOLDER OPTIONS > choose FILE TYPES tabs, scroll down to HTM and HTML extensions, select one, choose ADVANCED BUTTON (if present) and then change default icon, or if ADVANCED is not there, choose RESTORE button (they swtich, depending on what your default program is.)

Open the registry....this is more complicated....try the other two first
