    The last few days on my Mac mini OS X 10.3.9 system, I've noticed all of my .dmg and .toast files keep getting icon changes. Every day, it's a new icon.

    The first thing that popped in my head was rebuild desktop, but that's an OS 9 thing.

    Any suggestions on how to get my icon association back to the default icon for my .dmg and .toast files? Is there some sort of hard drive utility that I can run to fix this?

    Repairing permissions didn't help.

    This is a screen shot of what it looks like:

    That and the prompt when I go to empty the trash look like that icon.

    This used to happen to me on Panther (it hasn't happened on Tiger at all) and all I could do to fix it was reboot, has this machine been rebooted in a while?

    Nope. It's been a few days since I've rebooted. Will restart and report back on results.

    Crazy.... the reboot worked. Icons back to normal. And I got about 700mb more free space, too.

    Thanks to all for the help with this.

    Just need to upgrade to Tiger soon.
