i can change the file association and it will show the new icons... but if i put it back to IE all i get is the generic no association icons... ive tried reinstalling IE also... along with all sorts of other obvious things i tried... so if anybody has any (more advanced i guess i should say) ideas please let me know...

i fixed it :thumbsup:

if anybody comes across this thread with the same problem this is what u need to do

its a problem that happens to some people.. programs add a key to the registry that changes the default icons.. in this case it was GoLive


is the key that refers to


which has this key

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{42042206-2D85-11D3-8CFF-005004838597}\Old Icon\htmlfile\DefaultIcon

which has an invalid path or something.. u can either fix the path.. or just delete


all together.. which is what i did.. u really dont need it :flowers:
