I could not find any reference to this problem happening to anyone else. I have downloaded the server and the FTP client from

It has become difficult to research this thoroughly because every llnk I click on opens up another Filezilla Server window (version

I would have completely shutdown my computer and restarted it, but the icons remained changed. I would appreciate your help with this asap.

It appears that Windows' startmenu and icon cache somehow got corrupted. This is not a bug in FileZilla, but instead a bug in Windows that for some reason got triggered by FileZilla.

You could try to delete the cache and rebuild it. The icon cache is located in %LOCALAPPDATA%\IconCache.db, though I have no idea where the start menu cache is.

Please contact Microsoft support for further assistance, they should be able to further analyze this problem.
