Hi

I have three hard drive C, D & E.

D & E's icons are fine, but my C drive icon is not the normal icon for a Local Hisk icon.

How do i get it back?

Thanks

If you are ok with using regedit, navigate to this registry key.. HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Drive\shell
Check to see that the value data says none. If not change it and re-boot.

If that doesn't work then you can try checking to see if the autorun.inf file has been changed or moved. Or.... you can try this neat little utility and have some fun with icons.

This article Change Hard Drive Icon offers two options. I've never tried the top one. The bottom paragraph involves editing the Registry. Make sure you back up your Registry before making any changes.
