    a few weeks ago, i noticed that whenever i bring up a folder, my files are listed in reverse order :wtf: how do i get it back to the way it was?
    when i right click and do "arrange icons by name" its gets them in the correct order, but once i close the folder and open it back up, the files end up being reversed again

    and why are the icons different? one is one a winamp icon and the others a wmp icon? how do i make them all the same like they were before? i tried right clicking and doing "open with" and i chose winamp for all of the files and nothing changes

    i would do a system restore but im not sure how long ago it started doing this

    here is a picture

    open my computer. Get it the way you like it, then Tools > Folder Options > View > Apply to All Folders. As for diff icons, they're different media types. Such as wma and mp3. You can do this to get them all to winamp: Tools > Folder Options > File Types > [select file type] > set to winamp.

    open a windows explorer window (windows_key + e)
    select view > details
    click the name bar to sort on the name field until its sorted in the right direction
    select tools > folder options
    select view tab
    click button that says "apply to all folders"
    click yes | ok to any prompts so that all windows close and your done

    EDIT: sob, a second late oh well atleast you know neither one of us were wrong

    nice, thanks. once i got them all in order, it changed the icons all back to the same one. i hope it stays this way.

    any idea what could have caused this?

    you. but, that's just a guess.

    seriously though, this isn't a likely affect from a program like a virus but more so a user error. probably did it without even knowing. no harm though.
