Black squares on desktop instead of icons
I have black squares being created instead of normal icons on my home screen when new files are created. (Mostly PDF files) When I move the file to another directory (copy or move) they then show with the proper icon, ie PDF icon. Any suggestions?
Running Windows 7 Home Premium on Toshiba Satellite A665-S5170,

black square icons & spell check issues gmail/firefox
Thanks ! That did it. Not sure which one worked as I did both and then rebooted and now my icons are back, all nice and shiny
Here is another one for you. I use Firefox and I think since the last update there is an issue with the spell checker in gmail. It shows the last few letters of some words as misspelled even when they are not.... I read somewhere this is a known bug in new Firefox.... but have not been able to find any other references.
