Ok,so the problem is,when i open the start menu, the link to the control panel, Admin tools, Connections,Help and Support,Search and Run are all displayed incorrectly as you can see with the link i have added below.They also display incorrectly in the control panel itself,most are ok in there except for about 5.
Its not a main problem,theyve been like it since i can remember,so if nothing can be done i can live with that.Ive not got the XP cd,but if anyone knows of a way to display them correctly,id appreciate it if they could tell me!


My Start Menu


Thanks all :thumbsup:

Check to make sure you have this file on your hard drive:
%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll
%SystemRoot% is normally either C:\WINDOWS or C:\WINNT

That file contains many (if not all?) of the default icons used by the system.

Go to the control panel under display (or right click on an unused spot on your desktop) and see if your theme has changed.

You could try this; download the Microsoft Powertoy Tweak UI from this page

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloa...ppowertoys.mspx

After installing it open it and go down to the repair selection on the bottom of the list. Select Rebuild Icons from the drop down menu and click repair now. If it doesn't seem to repair them then try rebooting to see if that works.

Good luck :thumbsup:
