Recently I was configuring my pc (windows XP service pack 2) and was rebooting it when I got a message on screen which I foolishly ignored and continued shutting down the pc.
When I turned it up again some of my desktop icons (not all of them) and also some of the icons on the windows explorer changed color! The image of some icons on the desktop is sometimes transparent (showing the background wallpaper), other icons have changed color completely (red is now blue.. etc) and other icons surprisingly remained the same.
If I open the windoes explorer I can see some icons that now have a light blue border inside the image.
If I try to change the icon to the original one I can successfully do it.. but when I reboot the pc they all display the same characteristics I described before.
Can anyone help me with this? this is driving me insane. I wish I could have more info on why this happened but I think it has to do with the message that the PC displayed and that I didn't read
It is not because of number of colors or anything.. I still have the PC configured with the same number of colors and also it wouldn't explain why on windows explorer, some icons now have a light blue border... agghh.. it is driving me nuts!
I would really appreciate if anyone knows how to fix this!!!
