Windows 7: [HELP] Red "x" on disk icons, desktop icons changed!

[HELP] Red "x" on disk icons, desktop icons changed!

Hey, guys. Finally I have found the place where my problem might get solved.

Thing is:

1.There is a big "X" on 3 out of 4 disks I got(except "C" disk) as shown in the picture below:



2.Desktop icons are changed as well but not all of them.



This is the second time this kind of crap happens to me. Last time it happened was after I clicked system backup. I couldn't stand the problem so I reinstalled my windows 7 pro 32bit and at first it was all ok. It came back after I rebooted which I couldn't figure out why. The only diffrence is last time all the desktop icons were changed, but this time as you can see some of the icons aren't changed.

Have anybody had the same problem as I do and know how to solve it ?

Any help will be very much appreciated!

Kind Regards
nasda

Could it be a virus? Download Malwarebytes and run a Full scan.

A simple system restore fixed the problem -____- I wish I could understand what caused it.

Thanks Grimmjow for providing the thread link, I do find our common point. Both of us run AlienwareGUI before this problem happened, but last time it happened I didn't. I guess system back-up and alienwareGUI caused the same unknown problem.

Anyway, thank you!
