To whom it may concern:

I am having a problem with some symbols on my laptop.

Mainly my blackberry messenger and Internet explorer.

My problem is that when I open either is that the normal icons, whatever they may be, only show up as the attached.

It makes them "un-clickable" which of course posses a problem.

I've checked in the Device manager and didn't see anything wrong/missing.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

Do you have Adobe Flash Player installed? The symbol you see is related to Flash.
You can download it from http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=BUIGP

Did you install it after downloading? If you did, I have nothing else to offer. That was the only thing I could think of.

Open explorer pull the right side over enough to expose the desk top, click on programs then the folder for the items with the bad icons. Look for the executable file which will look similar to what you see on the desk top, you can verify if it is the right item by clicking on it. if the program opens the next step is to drag it on to the desk top, the original will stay in the file but a new icon will be created on the desk top. I have added/replaced/repaired icons for years with good results. This should work just fine unless you have some other existing problem caused by something else.

It's not so much icons for launching the program.. it's once the program is open. Like in my example picture, I'm already in my blackberry manager... and then all the icons to go into menus aren't there, or are there rather but show as that "default" icon which make them "unclickable".

Any other ideas ?? :0(
