same icon for every shortcut?

By Seadogs ·
One of our users is on a fairly new NT 4.0 sp5 workstation box. Recently he was using Autocad2000 and ran into some problems. Our Cad person worked in autocad and then restarted his computer. When it came back up, all the icons had changed to theExcel icon. The names and shortcuts still work, but instead of 10 odd different icons, you see 10 icons for Excel. The only ones that weren't affected were those such as my computer, briefcase, etc. We've tried logging on as different users, deleting and recreating shortcuts, changing the icon, but nothing seems to work - they all go back to the excel icon. Is there some setting that might control this? Thanks for your help,

Not that I know of. You may have to reset them manually in properties.

But let's get some other opinions.

I've seen this a couple of times and have had pretty good luck with TweakUI. This is one of the utilities from Microsoft's powertoys. Just download this utility, install the tweakui part, go to the repair tab, and click on rebuild icons.
You can download it from download.cnet.com. Just do a search on tweakui and download the utility.
Email me if you have questions. Good luck!

I've seen this before and by changing the small icon to large icons or visa versa seemed to correct the problem temporarily. Delete the shell icon cache to correct the problem.
