Regedit.exe icon has changed and not able to restore it

I don't know where I can put this thread in this forum.It is not a "crash" but something unusual.

See the attached images below,you can see that reg edit icon has changed.I don't know when was this happened but I noticed this very recently and tried some of the usual methods.
1)tried to change icon manually,but since this is an important windows file,I just can't see change icon option.
2)I have scanned the whole PC for viruses,malwares using MSE and Malwarebytes(Free).
3)I have ran sfc /SCANNOW and found no issues.
4)Since I don't know when this was happened,I just don't know which restore point will be suitable but I keep only one recent "stable" restore point and that won't fix this issue.

The only thing which will solve is Windows Reinstallation which I don't need since it takes a lot of time to install,update and delete temporary files after installing everything.For me it just takes 1 day!.

Besides,the system is so stable and no crashes,no BSODs and I am able to open regedit.
