I show a copy in:
Here's a directory listing:

              2 Dir(s)  20,764,229,632 bytes free
Rename regedit.exe to regedit.exe.old

Copy the one from the folder named above to \windows

Activate the Hidden Admin user account since you'll need full admin perms -

Built-in Administrator Account - Enable or Disable

The "7600" in the folder name means SP0, but if the sizes are the same, I would see if the copy from \winsxs works.

Regards. . .


I have solved this in another way but quite interesting for me.I say it was your idea to prompt me to log in with hidden administrator account.When I did,I see that regedit.exe has the original default icon.So I suspected it may be the issue with current user account.So I logged in with current user and deleted the iconcache.dll or some dll file that is related with icon cache.And logged off and again logged in.The regedit has got the original icon.So the issue was the corruption of icon cache.
Thanks jcgriff2 and your solution was much informative for a beginner like me.
