    Unfortuately, with the DOS nomenclature it is not clear which
directory it is pointing to.  Program~1 is almost surely Program Files,
but Paints~1 could be Paintshop Pro 5 or Paintshop Pro 6.  Do you still
have a PSP 5 directory?  If so, this could be pointing to that
directory.  The zero at the end tells Windows which icon to use from the

    The only other thing I can think of to try (without actually being
able to play with your computer) is to remove all the associations and
let PSP 6 reclaim them.  Open Window Explorer, go to View|Folder
Options|File Types, scroll down the list until you find Paint Shop Pro 6
Image and highlight it, then click Remove.  This will unassociate all
the file types.  Then, start PSP and go to File|Preferences|File Format
Associations.  Check all the formats you would like associated with PSP
and then click OK.  You may have to close PSP and restart it.

    Good Luck.

1. windows icon question

I'm trying to make a desktop icon for a software package that will run on
Windows.  I've found a good icon editor and created an icon that works in
high-color (24 bit) display.  But I can't seem to get the icon to display
properly on a 256 color display.  The image does not use the 16 system
colors so I can't save it as a 16 color icon, and I have tried reducing
the icon color depth to 13 colors, but it still won't display correctly.
