All my icons for my programs are being switched about, for example, My Adobe Photoshop Folder has a "perview gif" type icon, and when I went into "get info" it showned my Tactical Ops icon! I'm running 10.3.9 on my 1.09 Ghz iBook G4. Whats going on?


Look at this screen shot: see where adobe is suposed to have it's little folder? http://img378.imageshack.us/img378/4...leofwtf9gy.jpg

Just force quit the Finder or re-login to fix the problem. </mindwaves>

Icon issues like that were fairly common in 10.3 I had it happen quite a lot.

May have been common for you, but it never happened on my Macs.

I saw it a few times with 10.3, too. Totally random. Hasn't happened with 10.4 (yet)

It was just a bunch of plug-ins, not good, but not as bad as torrenting the whole thing...
