I am running XP Pro Sp 3 on a 2 month old custom -built machine. Somehow, several desktop icons have been replaced with the very common white box with another window-looking white box (inside the first white box) with three illegible 'dots' inside - from the left, one red, one blue-green, and a third also blue-green. I see these only on "My Documents", 'My Computer', and 'My Network Places". None of these allows the Icons to be changed. I have looked around in 'windows' and 'Win32' directories for the names of each one, with a '*.ico' and find nothing.
Any help would be most appreciated. They look strange on the desktop, and I could relegate them to a 'Holder Folder' I guess, but I use then quite frequently. Ideas, please? I'm going kind of nutty on this...
Thanks for any help on this one.
