    Desktop Icon (Vista Ultimate SP1)

    I have a desktop shortcut to the Lounge. In Vista, if I change the icon to the "lounge Lizard" ( or even some other icon ) it will not stick and reverts to the default MS "E" icon after a reboot. The shortcut works OK but just the icon changes back.

    I have the same desktop shortcut on my XP partition and that works fine and stays to whatever I change it to.

    NOt service affecting, just annoying! Thoughts?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    A quick Google shows you are not alone, but there may be a solution here at Annoyances.org.

    Try clearing all of your temporary internet files. Seems to me I had the same problem once, and if I remember correctly ( <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>) , that solved it.

    Leif,
    Thanks, that seemed to do it.
    A lot of options suggested but the one that did it was changing the view to "classic icons"

    The Lounge Lizard is back in place! <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>
