You said that you have tried Icon Cache - Rebuild . As the next step,
run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker .

If it failed, there is another way , not that easy though, Icons - Change Using Resource Hacker .

If SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker fails, better you let us know, we will suggest you the next step.

BTW, you are using 32 bit windows. Is it SP1 installed or not ?
