Two of my icons in my system preferences seem to be gone snd now I am left with a weird looking light switch icon for both...the startup disk and universal icons were the ones affected (see pic)...How can I fix this and what could have causes it? It is rather annoying! Thanks


I have a black Macbook by the way.

In the wise words of WildCowboy:
Close System Preferences, then look for a file called "com.apple.preferencepanes.cache"...I think it's in in <your user directory>/Library/Caches. Drag it to your Desktop and then try opening System Preferences again. If all looks well, you can go ahead and trash the file you dragged to your Desktop.
