Hi hughbie...

This sounds a little like a corrupt icon cache...or it needs to be refreshed.

Right click on the desktop and choose "Properties". Under the "Settings" tab, change your "Color quality" from 32 bit to 16 bit and "Apply" the change. Then change it back to 32 bit and "Apply" the change. This will usually refresh the icon cache.

Does this help?
