Windows 7: Silly icon question

Silly icon question

Okay, so here's the silly question regarding icons.

I've begun to notice that occasionally the icons for some .exe files changes from the application's icon to a generic looking .exe document thing.

How do I revert the change to the default application icon?

Thanks,
Rhit
