Why don't desktop icons work??
I made the mistake of downloading the "incredimail" program and now the icons don't work (except solitare)...so I deleted incredimail....and they still don't work. What happened?? (I have W-XP)
There is not error report,,,,just does nothing...not even an hourglass.

Do you get an error when you click the icons, or what? If so, please post.
Trying checking the porperties of the non-working icons. Do a right-click on the icon and select properties. In the target box, see where the icon is trying to load the program from. I have seen cases where Windows has changed the location of icon targets so that instead of point to "C:\something" they will point to a different drive "g:\something". Just change the icons back to "c:"
(And yes, the Tweakui icon rebuild will something correct this problem).
