    Have not heard of any virus that do this, but just to be on the safe side, I would make sure my anti virus is up to date and run a full system scan. Let me know if you find something.

    I had somewhat the same thing one's... after running Emule!
    All icons changed to cd icons with the normal icon beneath that!

    Couldn't fix it fast enough so i did a fresh Windows Install.. i hope someone has another solution for you!

    Good Luck!

    ps

    If you check the properties of some of the shortcuts.... are the icons normal? Or are they all really have the same icons?

    Download TweakUI. It has a function to repair Icons, this always worked for me.
