We have a terminal server, got a call that a user's icons were missing their native pic, most common is all Office and Adobe Acrobat. If they double-click on the shortcut the correct program opens, but cannot figure out why lost their association.

If you navigate to a shared folder the documents for Word or Acrobat also lost their format.

I also checked file associations and all extensions, ie .docx or .pdf as set to open the correct application. Just the icons seemed to of all lost their association with the original icon...

Thx DaKrash,
It turned out to be durning a cleanup process to recoup some disk space, I deleted a few Windows Installer folders, but luckily I didn't empty the recycle bin, after reading on of the posts you linked me to, I saw similiar scenario, talked about a cleanup and then it hit me to try to restore the folders from recycle bin. I did that, pressed F5 to refresh desktop and my icons returned to their glory...

Thanks again for you help!
