I can't test this as I have all my arrows disabled. But try changing the icon manually.

Right click the shortcut and choose properties

Browse to the location where you saved your replacement icon

drop_box48x48.zip for instance

(save somewhere it will stay, my documents, pictures, etc.) and ok and/or apply your way out.
