    Somehow I have lost some original icons in Windows 7.
    How can I retrieve them?

    TIA

    Win 7 doesn't include any mail program, presumably you downloaded /
    installed WLM

    No, it doesn't but I use it running W7.
    The icon is shown but not the original one.
    It happened when I uninstalled Nero 9 , after
    an installation went wrong.

    For Windows Live Mail:
    If you've got a 32 bit system go to:
    C\Program Files\Windows Live\Mail\Wlmail.exe
    If you've got a 64 bit system go to:
    C\Program Files(x86)\Windows Live\Mail\Wlmail.exe
    Right-click Wlmail.exe and 'Send to desktop (create shortcut)'.
    That will give you a new shortcut with the correct icon.
    (You can use the same procedure for any program's exe file.)

    Just to add here, you can also right click on the desktop icon and
    choose properties, then click on change icon. Next just click on browse
    and go to the path you've mentioned and have a choice of 5 different icons.
