mostly, the new folders under your user account folder. like, downloads, contacts, links and so forth. this always happens eventually. after a clean format, they work all the time. then at some point, this time after i applied the pirate set that i bought, some of the icons wouldn't change when i updated to any other theme. then i change the icon back to the default windows icons manually, since IP couldn't do it, not by rebuilding or repair, even setting to windows default kept it as pirate.
now, they just stay as default, and won't change unless i do it manually per icon. any thoughts? i searched the forum as i thought this would be more common, since i've been running into this issue since vista came out
