    Question Icons Corrupt

    On a WIN XP SP3 desktop that I maintain, some of the Icons on the Start Menu-All Programs and recently run programs have changed to a "generic" box with a blue bar across the top. All the Office 2003 as well as Adobe Reader and some random others display this way. I Googled "XP Icons Corrrupt" and tried everything that I found with no change. The programs all run fine when the "blank" icon is double-clicked.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    It's been a month, but I remember that I did rebuild the icons cache and used TweakUI; and neither made any difference.

    The long way around...
    Go the the individual programs' root folder and copy or short cut a new icon to the desktop for all those that have become corrupt.
    (Usually; "C:\Program Files")
