I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit on a new Dell laptop. Attached is a picture of where my problem appears
The problem is a small image appears over the icons for Folders. This little image appeared sometime in the last month and I've been too busy to worry about until now.
I've tried many suggested solutions which mostly boil down to right clicking on the icon, selecting Properties, then customize and changing the icon. That works to change Icons for folders BUT not the little image sitting on top of the icon.
Here is what I believe happened.
A month and a half ago my licensed copy of Adobe 8 stop working and I could not create a PDF file from within any software. Uninstalling/reinstalling Adobe 8 would not fix the issue.
In a panic I purchased SODA PDF 9 Pro Edition so I could get some work out the door.
Sometime in the last month I touched something that caused the white "S" in the Red circle which appears on top of the folder Icons. I think it might have been a file extension associating thing but I don't remember.
SODA had an annoying feature I could not live with so I bit the bullet and bought an older PC based copy of Adobe 9, it installed perfectly and works fine.
I uninstalled SODA but the Icon problem didn't disappear. I'm assuming SODA was somehow involved.
