I have send some times before for serious problems and your help was amazing!!
This time I have a silly problem but it really gets on my nerves...
So, I bought a new laptop with vista and one day I wanted to open a .doc file. I didn't know that in vista you can't open docs without having ms office. when i saw the icon of the uknown application i did right click and open with wordpad. the icon took the shape of a blank paper with the icon of wordpad in the middle. as usually happens when you choose to open a file with a different application. Today I installed ms office 2003 and the the icon is a blank paper with the W in the middle, like the icon of ms word application. I want to retrieve the correct icon. I tried to delete the iconcache.db and restart but nothing happened. Please don't suggest something like right click open with or default programs...I tried them all, unless you have something serious that helps. I have good knowledge of computers so please only serious help.
Thank you a lot.
PS. I m sorry if i send to the wrong category I didn't find a category for ms office.
