WARNING: This is just a guess.

I think what might have happened is that someone hacked your computer, and for fun, they messed up your icons. Anyway the only way I know how to change them back is...

For system icons (My Computer, My Documents,etc) right click on the Desktop, click the Effects tab, then click Default Icon for each icon.

For all other icons, go to a folder (any regular folder) then click Tools, Folder Options. Click on the File Types tab. After the list loads, click on each icon that is different then you want it to be. Then click Advanced. Click change icon. Find the icon on your hard drive and select it. The icon files are often contained in the executable (*.exe) file for the program.

These are the instruction for windows ME. It might be different/more difficult on another OS.

Any questions? Just ask. :)

The answer is not right because all icons are exchanged not only of my computer or my document.

It occurs after a crash?
If yes, then your system files may be damaged.

Start-->Run-->sfc.exe

Then it will heal it.
