Program icons revert back to default Windows icon

Post by UGV0ZXIgT » Fri, 06 Jun 2008 06:50:00


Hello
I recently installed a new larger WD hard drive, and usig the sw that came
with it, I copied the contents of my old drive to my new drive, then
reformatted the old smaller drive. As a result, there are a lot of program
icons (eg Word, Adaware, etc) that have gone away, and have beem replaced by
the default Windows icon. How can I get the original progrma icons back?

--
Thanks for any help

By reinstalling the programs themselves on to the newer drive. Merely
copying files over isn't enough. Hopefully "the sw that came with it" would
have explained this.
