Can't Change Icon to Defaults

I used the "Drive Icon Changer" and now I'm unable to restore the HDD icon to the default. Can someone please help?

Hello William,

You might see if you can manually change the icon back using the tutorial below. Be sure to also check the yell TIP box as well. The default C: icon path is: C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-36

Drive Icon - Change

If not, then you can do a system restore using a restore point dated before you used "Drive Icon Changer" to undo it.

Hope this helps,

I hope Ordinary's problem is already solved. If it is needed, I am supplying a few drive icons .
