The Printers icon in My Computer is all messed up.  It's as if my computer is looking for a non existant icon somewhere.  It takes forever to load the windows and then it's just a generic icon.  Please help me fix this problem.  Anyone know where in the registry the defaulticon is for the Printers box?

please email me
