Windows 7: Restore default icons multiple folders

Restore default icons multiple folders

I want to restore the default icon setting to multiple folders in Win 7 64.
Is there a way to do this natively in Win 7 or do I need a 3rd party app?

I am using the following method:
right click folder>properties>customize>change icon>restore default>apply>OK

that procedure works for the selected folder, I would like to do that for multiple folders simultaneously, can it be done?

what I want to do, is have folders 'show folder contents'
it would be nice to be able to do this all at once to multiple folders

I read both folder tutorials and neither seem to do what I would like to do

maybe I'll just have to plow through all my folders and do it one at time
or change then over time as I access them
