Icons screwed in the toolbox

P: n/a

Hi,
All of a sudden half of my VS.NET 2005 toolbox icons have got what looks
like a chart icon instead of their usual one.

What gives and why does it happen??

More importantly, how do I get the usual icons back. It feels a bit like
the old ShellIconCache problem Windows used to suffer from??

As no-one seemed to know the answer to this one here, I discovered the
public.vsnet.ide group and another toolbox related problem led me to
resetting the toolbox.

I found a quick way to do it is to pop the toolbox out when in a code
window, not a form, and you get a blank toolbox as there are no controls
relevant to the code window. I then right clicked the background of the
toolbox and one option is "Reset Toolbox" it warns you that you will lose
any custom tools as it is going to reset you back to the default toolbox
layout, but it did the trick. Now I have all my normal icons back in the
"All Windows forms" group.
