Fairly normal bug.

It is possible to set the Icons for drives. You can also set custom icons for individual drives. This reg file is for drive C, the drive is the second last part of the key without a colon.

"@"="Path to icon, Icon index"

See for a list of icons. This is for 98 but ME is the same.

AFAIK, no cure is planned so we get to dive in and manually kick it around.
