    Some problem with my XP.. (n)
    The RAR files do not have an icon...
    That RAR icon is gone - It just shows up as a 'system file' icon.
    Any ways to change it back?

    Check out WinRar Themes If you have 3.50 and up you can use this option. If you don't have it you can download V3.70 HERE

    Download the attached zip file, unzip it, right-click the reg file inside and choose "Merge". The icon should be back after the next boot.

    That's good news. I was hoping the problem went no deeper.

    You can mark your own threads "solved" using the Thread Tools above.

    Are you sure that that isn't what caused the problem in the first place? LOL
