If its only on the large icons and "in-use" or Active Folders you need to delete your thumbs cache. The view isn't (technically) of icons, it's of images.

GoTo Start > My computer > right click C: or your System Hard Disc Drive, select Properties, select Disk Cleanup. When its done its search, make sure to tick Thumbnails. Run the Cleanup. Re-start your PC.

The suggestion given by Lasy B should work . If it also does not work, try Icons- Change Using resource Hacker ,
Change the icons Supplied in Desktop.zip with corresponding numbers of icon groups in imageres.dll .

The Dell icons are not in your system anymore . Now rebuild your icon cache once .
