My mother has called me and said her desktop icons on her new Win7 machine have been randomly changing from exe's, to shortcuts and back to exe's. She said icons have the little shortcut arrow on them sometimes, then sometimes they dont. Mind you shes 75 and Im thinking the icons always had them but shes just noticing it now.
Has anybody ever experienced this before, or is there something I should check? I cant think of anything that would cause this.

Thanks in advance!
