I wish I had kept a photo when there was not this problem of the icons that are seen when Start/Programs is done. Because I think there are icons for each of the programs are there not? It is just that I am seeing only icons for a few like the Microsoft Office products but not for the other programs- there is just a generic folder/page icon? Is there a problem?

Coincidentally I was using Firefox 1.5 browser yesterday and the toolbar bookmarks all disappeared and today I noticed the above problem, is there a connection between the two problems?

There may be a connection to the problems, but try this for the icons...

Use This Guide and choose the procedure for your Operating System.

Note that the ShellIconCache file does not pertain only to the control panel icons, but the desktop icons as well.

For the Firefox Favorites (Bookmarks), go to C:\Documents and Settings\yourusername\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\randomname.default\bookmarks.html

Double click the bookmarks.html icon. Are your bookmarks listed here? If not, open the bookmarkbackups folder in the same window, choose the largest file, copy it, and paste it in the previous folder. Now try your favorites.
