    Mess Up Icon in Windows XP

    Check the image..

    Most of my icon are very weird in the computer.

    It's get been worse with Word... Some word document, the icon are looking normal, other word document, the icon is all mess up.

    I allready check in Explorer for the file type and they show correctly there.
    An antivirus and Ad-Aware were run with nothing to report.

    Anyone got idea?

    If you check the Properties of the icon, does it still show a preview of a messed-up icon?

    I just did a rebuild icon and I fix the problem. But now, all my icon are in 16 bits colors and very ugly! I'll have to rebuild the profile I think!
