    Hi!
    I am quite a new user of Windows Vista (not because I have ever wanted to use it, but because I was forced to do so -> standard laptop equipment).

    I have a problem with icons. Recently, having installed some video codecs (_probably_ because of that), I found that my explorer (and desktop as well) icons of shortcuts crushed. It means: there are still those beautiful big and so on icons, but in their left bottom corner there is another, standard "unknown" icon present. To make it more clear I attach a small jpg with this phenomenon.

    The question is - how to 'repair' them? I tried uninstalling all the programs I have installed recently - did not help.

    Thank you for any clues!

    Well... That's the most obvious solution. Already checked - doesn't work. The problem affects ALL the shortcuts in the system, wherever and whenever they would be created. It is a global problem - creating another user account does not help. What is more - restoring system to the state from a few days also does not help.
