I've been having some trouble with my laptop as of lately. For some reason, the file icons in Windows Explorer for ONLY CD/DVD media are messed up. If I view by Icons, you get this strange looking computer icon as shown below. If I arrange by Tiles, I get the IE7 icon.
Only when I reboot the computer and open the CD/DVD in the first 30 seconds do I get the correct file icon. Otherwise afterwards, every file icon is one of these two, depending on the Icon or Tiles view respectively.
Things I've tried: I've tried uninstalling the CD/DVD drive and reinstalling it. I've run Symantec Antivirus, Ad-aware, and Spybot. I've gone through a Hijackthis log to make sure it isn't adware. I tried switching from "Use Large icons" and to switch back. That worked up until I rebooted the machine and it came back.
Can someone help me with this? Does this have to do something with the icon cache?
