Journal FortKnox's Journal: WinXP Help: Lost most of my icons? 11

OK, I was just putting in my AvP2 disc into the CD Rom, and just when the 'autoplay' menu popped up, all my icons switched to the standard 'default' icon. My computer, my docs, internet explorer (for windows updates... I'm still a firefox guy)... actually, it looks like the windows-based icons are the ones that are lost, cause CD ROM is gone, but the firefox, AVG, and other game icons are still fine.

Any clue as to what's going on and how to change them? When I change "My Computer" to something else, it'll come up with the new icon... I switch it back, and it goes back to the default "I can't find the icon" icon. Rebooting did squat. Putting another (and the same) CD in and letting it autoplay did nothing.

Any idea what happened or how to fix it? Its very annoying.
