Sigh... here we go again.

I assume you mean that what used to be a TeXShop document icon is now a generic icon.

First, please open the Terminal application and type


with a space after the `s'. Then drag and drop one of the files with a generic icon onto the Terminal window and press Return. Look for an item called kMDItemContentType and let me know what it is set to. For normal icons I get

kMDItemContentType                     = "edu.uo.texshop.tex"

(there's lots of other output).

Good Luck,
