Screenshots and more information is needed here before we can help you.

Simply saying you have a problem with notepad tells us nothing.

As for the icon, right-click it and choose Properties. In the lower part of the window there's choices for changing the icon or locating the application but I'd suspect the .exe/executable file for Notepad is corrupted. The bad part is other .exe files may have been corrupted and your mention of a virus supports that theory.
