Hello Prabhakarlad,

Did you check for a hidden (not always hidden though) autorun.inf file when you open the drive letter in Computer?If there is a autorun.inf file, then delete it to restore your default icon.

If not, then you can try both Options in the tutorial below if you have not already.

Drive Icon - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Yes off course A set of Three Hidden folders were found On Each Drive ( Which Icons Were changed) Called - Autorun.ini , Desktop.ini ,and Commet.htt containing a .inf file With Comments " lpt3.Drive_is_protected_against_flash_viruses_by_RegRun" and was not able to delete by all means. But Thanks To Reno Uninstaller I Have Tried to Secure Force delete but not able to del. it only says " Files a secuarly Deleted but some files will delete after Reboot " and the Folder get automatically Renamed to ZZZZZ.ZZZ after reboot nothing was changed the same ZZZZZ.ZZZ folder was present on each drive with the same file file with it . But After I Have changed the folder name to any XYZ , ABC . AZZ and reboot the system Icons Are Backed to their original , But Still the Folders on each Drive in hidden

Well, at least you have your icons back to normal.

You might temporarily disable or uninstall the RegRun program, see if you may be able to detete the folder on the drive, then enable or reinstall RegRun.
