OK...so I did a hard reset on my Ipaq and restored from a backup. Unfortunately, it seems taht my start menu wasn't backed up. So I had to manually restore the shortcuts -- and that in itself isn't a big deal.
Unfortunately, I deleted the "tasks" icon by mistake, and so I made a shortcut from \windows\tasks.exe.
But now the icon for my new "task" shortcut is a generic executable shortcut. Is there any way to get this to be the original tasks icon again?
