Windows 7: context menu icon

context menu icon

i noticed something strange today. the context menu icon of 'personalize' when you right click on desktop has changed. in my case, it changed to the notepad++ icon. not sure what is causing this and what's to blame. i've uninstalled notepad++ as well as looked for any shell registry keys with notepad++. no luck. anyone knows what's going on?

attached screen.

That is very strange and I have never seen that happen before. It might just be a graphic glitch. Have you tried restarting your computer and seeing if it's still there?

Hello Hartofalyon, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if rebuilding the icon index may help.

Hope this helps,
