Solved all my files and folder icons have changed

July 22, 2011 at 07:46:19
Specs: Windows 7
The My Documents folder in W7 has now got a green blob in the corner of it and so do all the files and folders in there as well.
Anyone any idea what's happened, and how can I change it back?

Peter

Brilliant. Your link to WinHelpOnline talked about overlays and although I knew it wasn't Norton or any other well known name, I checked out (with regedit) "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ explorer \ Shell IconOverlayIdentifiers" and noticed a couple of things that didn't look right and after backing up the link I deleted them, restarted, and the Green Blobs were gone.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
