Help desktop icons changing for no reason

I installed UT99 and UT2003 yesterday. (BTW, this isn't about them.) I noticed earlier that their icons had changed, UT2003's changed to a disk drive, UT99 changed to a globe. Both Icons had that little 4-color shield yo normally see on setup program icons. However, when I go into properties, it shows the proper icon. What is going on and how can I fix that?

Hi Tristan,

Icons changing can be due to several things. To name just a few that come to mind...

1. Corrupted Cache
2. Virus (though not likely)
3. Mods in UT
4. Startup options for the program

Those are just a few of my thoughts. One thing to try would be manually downloading the icon and setting the newly downloaded icon as the icon. I had to do this years ago to fix a strange corruption issue I was having and it certainly did the trick.

Where do I find the icon, how do I change it, and how do I fix the cache?
