Restore yellow folder icon in the Network Shares

Hi, I'm new to the forums... and I've a request

Months ago I used a program called "Hyperdesk", typical type of software that changes your windows themes, icons, wallpapers, etc.

So, this program has an option to restore the windows 7 theme/wallpaper/icons to the windows 7 "defaults", it's ok but the problem is that the folders that were "shared" are now with the old hyperdesk icon and not the yellow default folder, what i want is to get the yellow icon back!

Here's a pic of what I'm talking about:


I appreciate any help, thanks!

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will check for and try to repair corrupt system files.

Thanks Jerry for your reply.

I've tried using the Icon Cache Rebuild before with no luck, so now I used the "/sfc scannow" command 5 times but was unable to fix the corrupt files, then again i used the icon cache rebuild and now with success!

Thanks again.
