User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915 After I ran Registry Mechanic the last time, the following takes place. Frequently (not everytime) after I close e-mail window, my desktop generates and shows a large group (37) new, icons. The new icons are duplicates of the icons that were already on my desktop plus icons for the folders in my e-mail account (such as: unsent messages, templates, drafts, sent, etc.) each of these new icons has added to it the file entension "--.Ink.msf" To get them off my desktop, I select them with the mouse, drag them to the Recycle Bin, Empty the Recycle Bin, and then close the Recycle Bin. The new icons will not appear again until I have opened the e-mail window, read some e-mails, and then close the e-mail window. It is intermittent (sporadic). It does not happen every time. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Registry Mechanic 2. Open e-mail window 3. Read e-mails 4. Delete e-mails 5. Close e-mail window Actual Results: A new group of desktop icons appears immediately adjacent to the already existing desktop icons. All the new icons are white. Some (all but four) have an "Edit-Pad Lite" symbol in the center of the new icon. All of these are labelled with a text-label beneath the icon. The text-label is the same as the label under the desk-top icon on the left with the addition of the letters " .Ink.msf" For example: Four from the e-mail folder ("Drafts, Sent, Templates,and Unsent")have the "Windows-Flag" symbol in the center of the new icon. The label has been extended with an appended file-extension. For example Expected Results: I expect that there will be no additional icons put on the desktop when I close the e-mail function. I suspect that Registry Mechanic somehow wrote something into a script that it should not have. I now run PC Doc Pro regularly and it says I have no errors in my registry. I haven't run Registry Mechanic since this problem occurred.
