a bit too much keying in dos - mistake prone!
maybe this works How to Rebuild the Icon Cache in Windows Vista and Windows 7 - The Winhelponline Blog

or less keying Icon Cache - Rebuild

Icon Cache - Rebuild
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
DEL IconCache.db /a
EXIT
did NOT work on 64bit

Save the icon in a folder in your documents, for instance. Then do the right click, properties, change icon, and choose the icon you saved. A Guy
