Now, first uninstall iTunes and see what happens.

Next, check for any viruses. Boot into the Advanced Boot Options , and choose safe mode with networking. Download, install and upgrade Malwarebytes Antimalware, and scan your system with it.

Let us informed the results.

Try this to reset your Icon Cache.
1. Right click on empty area of the desktop and click on Personalize.
2. Click on the Display Properties link.
3. Under Colors, select Medium (16-bit) and click on Apply.
NOTE: If you already have Medium (16-bit) selected, then select Highest (32-bit) instead. Sometimes you will need to do a restart first, then proceed to step
4. Try both ways.
A) Click yes to confirm the new settings.
5. Now, select Highest (32-bit) and click on OK.
NOTE: If you already have Highest (32-bit) selected, then select Medium (16-bit) instead.
A) Click on Yes to confirm the new settings.

If that doesn't work, then do then you will need to rebuild the Icon Cache.

To Rebuild icon cache follow the below mentioned steps -
1. Click Start, then control panel and in the search box write Folder options.
2. Now click Folder Options to open and select (dot) Show hidden files and folders.
3. Open a Windows Explorer window.
4. Go to C:\Users\(User Name)\AppData\Local
5. Right click on IconCache.db and click on Delete.
6. Click on Yes to confirm the deletion.
NOTE: This deletes the file to the Recycle Bin. It is safe to empty the Recycle Bin when finished.
7. Close the window.
8. Empty the Recycle Bin.
9. Restart the computer.
10. When you go back, you will notice the Size of the IconCache.db file is smaller, and the Date Modified is now the current date.
NOTE: If for some reason IconCache.db is not there or the size has not changed much then you may just restart the computer again. You may need to restart a couple of times in some cases.
11. The icon cache will get rebuilt.
