Weird explorer icon?

So yeah.. I had a mac lion explorer.exe then i changed back to default now the start orb is normal.. but the explorer.exe icon wasn't in the picture I show you that the explorer.exe icon is weird but once clicked on in its location the icon viewer shows a default picture? Also in the taskbar its a Mac Explorer

Programs I think was caused by:
