My Win XP changes attribute of a folder to system attribute when I
change its icon. For example, if I create New Folder right click mouse
and choose properties, both Read Only and Hidden are UNCHECKED. But if I
change the icon of that folder the Hidden box of properties is GREYED
OUT(unavailable) It is not hidden. It becomes system folder.

I can go to MS Dos and remove system attribute from that folder but then
it restores default icon.
It has never happened before. I used to customize icons all the time.

Can someone please help? I tried to look for solution everywhere. Thank
