HI, my XP Home has suddenly lost some icons. These were on the Quick Launch
bar (all), Start Menu (some). I had a similar problem a year or so ago, and
managed to get all the missing Icons back by selecting an Icon in the
properties. This time however, the Icons of some of the entities cannot be
repaired this way. In particular "Show Desktop" (quick launch), "Internet"
and "Email" (first page of the Start Menu), "New/Open Office Document"
(after clicking All Programs) and "Command Prompt" (accessories). These are
the ones I noticed at least. I am an admin on the machine...if I switch
users to another account (non-admin), all of those entries show the correct
Icons.

Got any thoughts?

Rob

Create a shortcut to CMD, and drop it on start.

Rightclick the start button, Properties, and see the checkboxes to show the internet and email icons
