Windows 7: Large Icons are appearing as Medium

Large Icons are appearing as Medium

First of all sorry if this is the wrong section but I'm new here. So I used to have large icons on my desktop and after the electricity went off my PC shut down. When I restarted it some of the large icons were displaying as normal. I tried restarting the PC again but nothing happened, I tried to view all the icons on small and medium then in large and nothing happened. I tried deleting the shortcuts and make them again and still nothing happened. How can I fix this? Here are some pics, sorry for low quality:

You might want to try a system restore to a point in time before you experienced the power cut.

Ctrl Scrolling doesn't work. System restore it says " No restore points have been created on your computer's system drive. To create a restore point open System Protection." I did all of this and followed the on screen instructions and it still says that there are no restore points. I turned on the protection on all the drives and selected "Restore system settings and previous version of files"

You could try rebuilding the icon cache.
