    What would cause all of the Icons on a desktop to change???

    For no reason???

    The PC in question is behind a network firewall
    and runs mcafee firewall and virus scan on the PC itself,,

    It also has all of the Microsoft updates and has been scanned by Spybot and comes back clean,,,there is no other problems with the P/C,,

    it just changes the desktop icons once in a while,,,very wierd,,

    How are they different?? Bigger,smaller, diff colors, moved,different pictures?

    Go to www.trendmicro.com and run the housecall program. You have some kind of a bug/grayware/spyware/virus. Or, someone with access to your comp, is messing with you.

    All Icon change pictures,,names stay the same just the pictures change,,,
    and it just does this once in a while,,all programs continue to work,,
    and once they even all changed back by themselves,,

    no recent software added,,

    reboot clears it up untill next time,,
