I've always had issues with the shortcut symbol switching out for other system icons, such as Adobe Imageready or Photoshop icons. However, this was slightly weirder. I created a batch file that does absolutely nothing (It just looks like it's generating code, but it's just pinging the localhost a few times) to screencapture and create a background for video. However, I decided to tweak it, so without closing the batch file (stupid, I know) I edited it in notepad and saved it.

Next thing I know, the logo from Portal has attached itself to the batch file's icon. I don't know if that game's logo was based off of some Windows function or something, but I don't have any copies of the game, actual or downloaded.

I'm running Windows Vista SP2, and I've attached a screenshot. Can anyone tell me what's going on?
Stupid question, I know. :huh:
