Winbdows 7 ultimate x64 | Ubuntu 12.04 x64 LTS
 
 

First try this, run 3 times if errors found- SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If that doesn't work try the option 2 here- Folder Icon - Change Windows 7 Default Folder Icon ?

Hello Jonathan,

If you meant one of your default Desktop icons, then you could use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to manually change them back to the default icon. The screenshots in that option are for the default icons to help.

User Folders - Change Default Icon


If you are using a custom theme that modified the icons in the imageres.dll system file that contains the default icon, then you will need to run a sfc /scannow command instead. However, this will also restore all system files back to default undoing any and all modifications to them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
