My icons have turned into black icons and my shortcut screen items are like a page with an icon in the middle...but they are all the same.
When I click on the icon eg. My Documents...all of the icons on the My Documents page are black. How do I fix this?

The reason that the icons are displayed incorrectly may be related to the use of TweakUI in conjunction with Internet Explorer 4.0 This occurs because of corruption in the Icon Cache file
To ensure that the icons are displayed correctly, complete the following steps
Uninstall TweakUI from the system (if installed)
Open Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel, then click the Display icon
Select the Appearance tab
Select the icon in the Item Box
Increase the icon unit by 1
Decrease the icon unit by 1
Delete the file %systemroot%\ShellIconCache Note: This file has a hidden attribute
Log off and log back on to see the correct icons.
