I don't know why, but I've noticed that all the programs in the start menu with links to websites don't show the IE7 icon. Why is that. I've also noticed in the system32 folder that the shell32.dll shows up many times with numbers beside them. I have shel32(3).dll, 4,5,6 + the original shel32.dll. I don't think it's normal. How the hell did they duplicate like this? And how do I correct the situation with the icon association in the start menu?

Thank you

If this can help, I've noticed that some links (internet shortcuts) say they open with Internet Explorer with a little house for icon. Others, the right ones, say they also open with Internet Explorer but this time it's with the IE icon for shortcuts (the white page with a little "e"). I think there's a bad file asociation. Should I change this in the "folder options" under file types?

It's possible that my question is somewhat not clear. I'm not sure anymore that I remember how the icons were before I installed my new XP Pro SP2. I don't want to make a big fuss about something that seems pretty insignificant. It's just because I bough a new computer 5 days ago and made a clean install of XP and it kills me to know some files may already be corrupted. I worked a lot to install all components and programs and I wouldn't want to start all over again so soon.

So, that being said, could some of you perform a really simple task for me? Please open your start menu. Now tell me under all those programs you have there, what is the icon associated with all your links to websites. Do you see the Internet Explorer favorites icon or the little white rectangle (of no file association). Here are examples of the icons:

Thank you for your time

Hi karbo!

I don't think scannow /sfc would work - it only checks and replaces some crucial files. When you double click on the link with the messed up icon, does it open in IE? Usually when you change an icon with a third party application, it makes a backup of the shell32.dll (hence the (2), (3),...). Have you used any such programs?

Anyhow, you should be able to restore the original shell32.dll simply by renaming it (remove the (4)). But make sure you copy the shell32.dll you have now to a safe location, if you need to replace it.:)

And as for your question, the links in Start menu should have the ie/firefox icon (at least mine do).:D

I know it must be caused by a third party program. I did install a program called Favorg to manage and find IE favicons. Other than that, I really don't know. But, I used it before and it didn't do that.

Damn, how am I going to fix this! How can I get back the right associations in the start menu for IE shortcuts? Would Tweak UI and its "repair icons" function do the trick?
