Hi folks.

I recently upgraded to a larger hard drive and I probably didn't do something right because now alot of my programs, photos etc. are covered up by Internet Explorer icons instead of the program icons that you can tell which one is the .exe file just by looking. This is really irritating and I can't seem to find where to get rid of them. When you go to view and try to change it that way, it just gives you a peek at the program icons but still remains blocking most of the original icon.

I tried going into I.E. to see if there was a preference tab that might give me a clue as to how to get rid of this but I couldn't find anything.

Anybody got any ideas? Or is this a really stupid dummy question?

Thanks for the help. I appreciate anyone helping.
