Windows 7: Weird Icons

Weird Icons

I have Icons for two program Office 2003 and PSP 7.04 that have identical icons that different than I am used in a previous install of Win 7 Pro.

I am just curious as to where Windows got these icons and perhaps how to return them to normal. All others programs have the icons they should have.

It is NOT an earth shattering problem as all the programs work normally.

Any info would be helpful. Thank you.

The problem became irrevelevant when Windows crashed and I could find no way to repair or get it started again.

After reinstalling Win 7 Pro again using an install disk that had SP1 slipstreamed (worked very well), and reinstalling these programs, all the icons are what I would normally expect.

Problem solved. Thank You
