Suddenly windows 7 decided to go bananas with the icons - most of the program icons in the taskbar and start menu are wrong - i.e. the MS Outlook Icon looks like the calculator Icon, the windows explorer icon looks like the calculator icon and the google chrome icon looks like the sticky notes icon.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this? I tried doing a system restore but that didn't work.

Hmm, back during the Windows XP days they had the UITweak utility that fixed that. You have to refresh something to fix it, I'll look into it and let you know if I find anything.

From what I can find out, you should try deleting the "IconCache.db" in your C:/Users/Username/AppData/Local folder to force the OS to rebuild your icon cache. Replace Username with whatever your account/PC name is. You will need to be able to view hidden OS files & folders to browse the AppData folder.
