Yesterday I was on my computer, I opened an email then all of the sudden every single Microsoft Word Doc that I had changed. It went from the normal Microsoft Word Icon to that Generic Icon. There's no problem opening my docs the only problem is changing back all 230 of my word documents from the random icon to the word icon. I have no idea what happened please help my OCD is kicking in big time.
thank you

the kid, Welcome to the forum. Right click your Desktop, choose Properties, under the Settings tab change the Color Quality from 32 but to 16 bit, click Apply/OK. Now go back and change the "Color Quality" from 16 bit to 32 bit, click Apply/OK. This should rebuild the Iconcache.db file and may correct the problem. If it doesn't go to Start>Control Panel>Folder Options>File Types tab and hilite DOC, click the "Advanced" button, click the "Change Icon" button and choose the icon you want, hilite it, click OK/Apply/OK.
