Windows 7: PDF Icon changed

PDF Icon changed

I been having this problem for ages, basically my PDF icon has changed to this..

Name:  pdf.GIF
Views: 124
Size:  2.0 KB

Now it is annoying me because I sometimes forget which program it is.. In windows explorer I can see a small adobe Icon (for files with pdf extension) but as soon as I click it in the taskbar the icon looks like that. Adobe is the default reader for PDFs. I have tried to set it in the file extensions in Control Panel but pdf extension does not exist there!

I am completely at a lost now...

Oh yeah I did that, deleted the file so it would be re-created still no look, also reinstalled adobe using revo uninstaller still no look.

Do you know where adobe icon is stored?
