Welcome to the Seven Forums

If this has just recently happened you could try a System Restore

If system restore does not work try this.
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 try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. You may need to do this up to three times with a reboot after each scan.

Follow that up with Icon Cache - Rebuild
