I'm not too sure just where to post this but here it is anyway. I have recently started having trouble with Icons on my desktop.
First it was my icons for IE, Firefox and Yahoo messenger. I had each one of those set up to work with a program called Drop My Rights and they were all working flawlessly for almost a year.
Then my system crashed and I had to take it to the shop and when I got it back none of those three icons worked. OK so yesterday I used the icon on my desktop that points to MS Paint several times and it worked like it's supposed to. BUT when I used it today I got a missing shortcut notice.
When I checked the properties of that icon they looked a bit strange so I did a search for MSpaint and this is what I found --> http://img157.imageshack.us/img157/5121/mspaintdt3.jpg
<-- I don't know how clear that pis is to everyone else but it kind of sucks when I look at it but that's the only way I know to show it to people.
OK as you can tell from the start in line paint is supposed to be lurking about in my C:\ WINDOWS\System32 folder but for some odd reason the mspaint.exe has just gotten up and walked off from where it's supposed to be.
Anyone have any ideas on how that could happen? Shoot I hadn't even restarted my PC since I'd used it last and it just took off.
EDITED: HELP!! FILES ARE DISAPPEARING FROM MY HARD DRIVE! SOL.EXE IS NO LONGER ON MY HARD DRIVE!
Thanks for any insight on this.
