    I have these crappy generic icons on my desktop - how do I associate an image with the icon?

    All my images - jpeg, jpg, gif, etc don't have a specific icon after I uninstalled photoshop. How do I choose one?

    if you have windows 2000 or xp, open windows explorer, go to tools, folder options, file types, find the file type you want to change the icon for then click on advanced, then click the change icon button. The file that mine points to is shimgvw.dll, which gives me the options of 6 different icons.
