    I ve managed somehow to mess up the default icon folder of my system. Can anyone tell me where i can download that folder and then just paste it into the directory?

    Thank you all in advance 4 helping

    I have the same problem (I think, at least partially). My mac won't display a little "preview" icon (being either the icon for the preview app or an actual preview of the file). It just displays a blank page icon for jpegs etc until I use a third party app like "Pinki" to make a real preview icon.

    I'm very interested to find out if there is a way to restore the default icons as well.

    You could always just create a new user account... then cut and paste them over.

    Ok, i ve found a solution to that one. Just mount your Tiger DVD, go to System --> Library --> CoreServices copy "CoreTypes.bundle" and replace with this the one on your HD. You might need to change the permissons in the "Get Info" findow for doing that.

    After u ve done that, repair permissions and restart your mac.

    Every icon should be back 2 normal!
