Thread: where are my icons?
04-06-2005, 12:03 AM #1where are my icons?
Sometimes, the icons disappear on applications in my finder. If they aren't gone, they are switched out with some other random app icon. The switched icons are from the MS office suite for mac, and they are switched with freeware apps icons. I usually goes away after a while and it doesn't affect how the applications work. Just the icon in the preview pane. Any thoughts?Cristal
What do you know if you don't know yourself?

the same thing happened to me for awhile.
I repaired permissions first (Applications->Utilities->Disk Utility; Select your system partition, hit repair permissions). That did most of it...I also think I had a wierd program that caused it (some shapeshifter esc thing). I deleted any shifty programs and ran repair permissions and have had it only happen once (like the day after) since. I hope this helps.

The above post should help. Any problems after that may be resolved with a reboot in single user terminal (restart w/Apple+ S) and in that terminal type /sbin/fsck -fy until the **file system changed** message is not displayed
