I have a problem with icons changing without having done anything.

Some of my icons in category view in the control panel have changed to other icons that are not the default icons.
As you can see in the picture below, the icons to the right are not standard/default icons.

It should look like this:

HOW DO I CHANGE IT BACK TO DEFAULT????????

Mmmmm, that's a weird one ...
Might be the iconcache is defective. Hopefully it is just that, because that is easy to fix.
I don't use 7 yet myself, but in Vista you find it at C:\Users\*username*\AppData\Local\IconCache.db
Just delete the IconCache.db and after a restart it get's rebuild and things should look ok again.

Cheers,
Sarah.
