The problem may not have been entirely erased, but I tend to be hopeful about this, because I do not want to do a clean install, until I upgrade my motherboard, CPU and RAM, and that may be part of the reason that I haven't yet upgraded.

You're right... I was speaking a bit much from experience in re: iconization issues. When it comes to executables, I'm at a loss. However, I've had it happen a lot. I'm going to stay subscribed, hoping this goes somewhere. BSOD Squad dude Richc46 or Brink would be great sources for this one. It's one of those issues that isn't all over the board but, when it happens, it never gets resolution. Sorry I couldn't have been of more help.
