IE7RC1, and my CD-ROM drive (DVD-ROM too)

    When I open a data CD (DVD) folder, instead of the folder icons, type icons,
    etc. I only get the icons for IE data.

    For instance, one of my disks for school contains .psd and .gif files, the
    files are there but the icons associated with them are wrong. If I copy
    those files to the desktop, the icons are correct. I noticed this after I
    installed IE7. Uninstalling it fixes the problem, but I'd like to stop going
    back and forth installing and uninstalling IE7. I've tried changing the icon
    associations, but again this only occurs in the CD-ROM drive (DVD-ROM drive).

    I have the same problem with wrong IE icons on CD data files on my notebook
    running Windows XP Home version and IE 7. When I put CD in desktop running
    Windows XP Home Media Center version with IE 7, the CD data icons display
    correctly. I uninstalled IE 7 on notebook and used IE 6, icons displayed
    correctly. Installed IE 7 again and IE icons on CD appear again.

    Internet search found Neowin Forum with the suggestion of downloading Tweak
    UI from Microsoft website. Open Tweak UI and click on repair, click Rebuild
    Icons and this corrects icons for files on CD. I need to use Tweak UI
    everytime I restart computer, but I can see proper icons for files on CD now.

    Sounds like there is a bug with IE 7 that needs to be fixed by Microsoft.

    I too solved my prblem with TweakUI (Microsoft Power Toys), but unlike you it
    fixed it permanently.

    Microsoft offers support for IE7 you should try it.
