On some of the last few programs I've installed in Win95, the icons that appear under the start menu & my computer are either missing or the wrong icon.  Yet, when I right-click start/open I find the correct icon listed for the shortcut.  Any ideas why and how to correct the problem?

Start windows in ms-dos mode.
go to your windows directory and remove hidden file:
Shelli~1 (full name of this files is) ShellIconCache
to make the file visible use the command:
attrib -h sh*.*  (this must be done in your windows directory)
After this file is remove, start windows in normal mode and every this should look normal.
