s'pose i could expound...
only the icons, not the text below or to the right, are affected. my icons are 1 px dots on my desktop now, as well as in the Places Dialog box, and .log, .ini, .dat, .cpl have all just disappeared for each file.
The Right half of my Start Menu is BLACK with no links hidden within. The icons on the Left side are affected to 1 px deimensions UNLESS i choose "Small" icons, in which case the icons on the left appear. The right side remains BLACK and empty.
can someone please give me an idea what common problem there might be here...?
i was attempting to replace the My Comp. icon using WinXP Manager (normally a pretty good app.) - got an error and all my desktop icons became 1X1 pixel, as well as those in my Start Menu, the Open/Save Dialog, and others (.ini, .dat, etc in my SYS folders don't appear).
I replaced explorer.exe and shell32.dll from my XP disk to no avail.
any ideas, anyone?
