(Sorry for my not so good english, im french from Montreal) ok more info that time! my mac is a G4 500mhz with 1gb of ram. Last week i run norton systemworks v1. during speed disk operation i had to stop the operation because i had.... then i lost my HD drive on the desktop, i tried a lot of things to mount it again and finally the last thing that works has been to use Norton volume recover. it took 24h to recover everything and eveything works perfectly. but i had a folder that had been created during the recover that was coming from an image disk that was mount on the desktop. i tried to flush that folder in the the trash but it wont delete even after a restart. so i went in the terminal and use rm code to remove it. that works but now i cant see my folders icons anymore
Trashing or better moving the com.apple.finder.plist in the home/Library/Preferences folder has not work.

I don't know what happened, but 24 runs of Norton probably messed something up somewhere. If you have your installation disks, use the Archive and Istall option to get at least your basic installation back to square one. See if that works, then reinstall programs, as needed.
