Files without extensions gets icon from quick time

Posted: 02-16-2009, 03:01 PM

There are files *without* an extension that get weird icons fro
quicktime (*.mov) files or sometimes from *.srt files (I adjusted th
*.srt files to get a special icon). How can I change this. I've tried
program called Unassoc that can unassociate file extensions but becaus
files without extensions are not in the list this method doesn't work

See if repairing the icon cache (using Disk Cleanup) helps.

Other options:
