<fixed in 6956> Rethink Troubleshooting icon

Submitted by .Chris on December 8, 2008 to Icons

What does the diamond mean? all other control pannel icons match what they do, but this doesnt. looks cheepy made, almost like a 9x icon with added shine and gloss. ugly.




Fixed in build 6956.

Yeah, don't know what it's supposed to represent. I hope it will be replaced by the time Windows 7 comes out.
