    My computer has been acting up on me. I posted a forum about how I keep on getting that annoying message "being used my another person or program" and someone reccomended that i download that unlocker program. It worked! So now, has anone had problems with their icons changing? All my icons changed to this box that looks like it has tiny pictures of files. I have tried the following:

    Right click the file, properties, customize, folder icons, and changed it to another icon, but it is not changing. Can this be locked also? Does anyone know what I am talkign about?

    Don't have an answer but it may help to let us know what os you are using.
    Also, Do you have all the patches for the os?

    easiest way is with a program called icon packager, it can repair/restore all your icons for you . . . !
