I am running an NT4 network with 120 computers. On one computer the icons have turned to black squares. I have reinstalled the VGA driver and NT Service Pack 6a with patch. Please could someone help.

Many thanks

Download and install TweakUI from Microsoft. www.microsoft.com/ntworkstation/downloads/ PowerToys/Networking/NTTweakUI.asp

On the repair tab select 'rebuild icons'
