I found my Dad's laptop with a blue screen and I actually ignored it and just rebooted, thinking it was an unhandled exception pushed my a memory overload.
Well to my surprise when the PC booted up all the icons in it where weird looking, except for those in the all programs tab of the start menu and the folders on the desktop. ( the best description would be that they looked like a collage of a few of different icons)
Not knowing what it was and wanting to see if it was the icons files that got damaged I decided to switch the icons around. Well the icon I messed with now appears normal except for one thing, a red bar in the lower left corner. Immediately I noticed that all the messed up icons also had the same red bar, the only icons with out the red bar where the normal ones.
Heres a screen shot of the icons
The OS is Win XP ME
