    Gene Therapy?

    Oh, perhaps you meant generic icons. Ah, yes. Probably caused by a file type problem or file association. You can do a Get Info and set the Open with... drop down to the appropriate application. Should work.

    Or get an application like FileType.

    If you use the Get Info process, you should be able to set it to use MX firework for every JPG image, if that's what you want. Select the application and click "Change All".

    I did that... but the icon for the files doesn't show up... it only shows up as a generic icon!
    I think in the old OS 9... you were able to rebuild the desktop but not sure with tiger
