This isn't a biggie, but it is something I would like to resolve.
I'm running Windows XP home edition.
Recently I booted up the computer and noticed my icon for .AVI files had changed to something else. It was still set to play through VLC player, only the ICO file changed. I went to change it, because I figured maybe someone changed it manually, but the original icon is no longer there, not to mention it would not let me change the VLC players icon at all, I had to switch to a new default program to do so, but changing back to VLC resulted in still not being able to change the icon.
I thought, no biggie, so I have to get used to a new icon.
Now I have discovered my .Gif icon had gone too... using Windows Picture and Fax Viewer as the default program. It too will not let me change the icon of it... so I used the Default Programs Editor to change the .Gif files icon... it works, however, it's also attached the same icon to .FLV, .AVI, .m4a files and probably more media files.
What did I do? and how can I fix this so each file extension has it's own icon for it, and not sharing the same icons?
