http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r16798823-XP-Pro-Local-Disk-icons-brokenSo then, in an attempt to fix it ,...looking at the 6'th post,
So I deleted"DriveIcons" and the drive icon returned! BUT Wait! Now when I click on the C: icon,..Instead of getting the folder contents,..I get a dosbox with c"\windows\system 32\cmd.exe
Launch Regedit, and look for the following key:
On a stock install, "DriveIcons" doesn't exist and the reason for it to exist is to make a custom label or icon for a drive. So you can safely delete "DriveIcons" to return it to default. No reboot should be required. If it doesn't exist, then atleast we have looked."
And to top it off,..the double-clicking mouse behavior still remains! Well to say the least,..I still have a bit of hair left on my head after going through all that for nothing!
I must forewarn you that I'm running without an antivirus,..but I did install malwarebytes and spy hunter 4 and they didn't find the trojan or keylogger that I thought was there! Right now I'm feeling like a dumb-ass for not protecting myself enough to avoid these issues.!
The bottom line here,..is that I'd like to have my C: drive folder back and resolve the double-clicking mouse behavior please! So can someone help me please? Thank you up front!
