Minimize and Close Icons Replaced When Window Maximized

Question:

When I maximize a window, my "X" and the minimize icon in the top-right corner of the window are replaced by small boxes of the same size. They look to be black with little green lines running horizontally through them.  The restore icon is unchanged.  If the window is not maximized, the icons are normal.

I had heard it may be a font issue, but since they work normally, I didn't think this was the case. I've scanned for parasites and viruses and found none. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Scan your drive for the hidden file named "shelliconcache" delete it and reboot your computer, it should be recreated.

Look for and delete the IconCache.db in C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile\Local Settings\Application Data\
then reboot.

There wasn't and IconCache, there was a GDFcache and an icon.dat in Application Data. I renamed/removed and it works now, so I split the points.

Thanks guys.
