Windows 7: Icon Help: Icons missing and replaced with Illustrator File Icon

Icon Help: Icons missing and replaced with Illustrator File Icon

Hey, I've been coming to this forum for a while now since I set up my Windows 7 system, the tutorials here are fantastic, and have helped me customized Windows 7 just the way I want it!

except just after the last couple of days, I noticed that a few of the icons in the start menu were missing, and replaced with what looks like an Adobe Illustrator file icon, and when I open the program, it also shows the Illustrator icon on the task bar :S

I was just wondering if any of you might know what would cause something like this, and I greatly appreciate any help that is given

I'll attach a photo to show you exactly what I mean:

Hello RadiantPaladin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if rebuilding the icon index may be able to fix it for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
