    Good.. so I suggest you proceed with the anniversary upgrade.

    Whether this (or an in-place upgrade repair install) will fix your problem depends on whether any related setting is carried over, or a correct version replaces it. If it's a setting, that is.

    I have installed the anniversary edition.

    This seems to have resolved that problem; thank you.

    Next time I will try the in place repair you suggested.

    The icons all came back. A few (hopefully) minor issues popped up.

    All of the shortcut arrows came back (were hidden), so that has to be fixed; Icon positions were not restored, easy fix.

    Currently for some reason new .txt and .rtf documents are taking a long time to created. Old ones open fine.

    I will mark this as solved and open a new thread.

    Thanks again dalchina .
