Windows 7: Jumbled Icons in Windows 7

Jumbled Icons in Windows 7

I have had an odd problem with icons getting mixed up in 7. I have made a set of directories for pictures of various old cars, and have added the car manufacturer's logos to each using Properties > Customize > Choose File. All very nice. But now I have those and other icons popping up all over the place. The Quicktime player icon has been replaced by the on from IconFX, for example. The JDownloader icon has disappeared entirely. I also have an icon on my MP3 folder that refuses to go away even after I click Restore Default. All very odd...

Any ideas?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, clean install, upgrade disc

First when you right click on the desktop, under view, do you have auto align checked, if so uncheck. You should have nothing checked or align to grid
If that does not work follow this thread that I recently participated in
