Can anyone possibly help - I'm running Mac OS 10.4.11 and recently almost all of my my folder icons have disappeared. On the desktop I can still see the icons for the HD, an external HD and for various document formats (pdf, doc, xls). However, my iDisk icon has turned into a generic "mounted drive" icon and all of the folder icons have disappeared. The text is still visible of the folder name. In the finder, the same is true and whilst all the files are still there, their icons are not (see picture). Overall the computer is running significantly slower than usual with the beachball of doom appearing often. I've repaired permissions and restarted by way of course, any suggestions please? Thanks P.S. The mds-crash-state file is new I think, but having read the threads relating to that, do not feel I am any further forward.
