    It appears that you have something else that is adding an overlay on these items.

    You might see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated before this started may sort it for you.

    Restore for C: is and has been on. There are no restore points. I doubt a malware infection because I use Windows Defender and a paid Malwarebytes, but I'll try a few more scanners.

    I managed to convince Veritas System Recovery (nee Norton Ghost) that it really should restore the system. It didn't want to because it thought the disk layout had changed. Problem solved.
