1.Did you try restarting your computer?
2.Try rebuilding your icon cache Icon Cache - Rebuild

did you just try refreshing the view? Rightclick on an empty space of the folder containing the one you just changed the image of and select "refresh".

the op told us in his post he restared the computer after clearing the cache.

dona22 ,you could try a sfc scan .

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

or next time as an experiment,open task manager kill the explorer process and then restart explorer from the task manager by clicking file /new task . in the run box type explorer.exe then ok.
