Run a repair install, and your icons will revert to default..

The shield (icon) is on Avast files, your anti-virus program?

Hello Lemon,

You can use the DLL download in the tutorial below to restore all of it's default associations and icon. If you have any other file extensions that have messed up icons, you can use the download for them as well.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

If the program altered the system files themselves to change the icons, then this may not work. In this case, running a sfc /scannow may then allow the downloads to work.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

You can download a program from NirSoft - freeware utilities: password recovery, system utilities, desktop utilities that will help you fix all your file types and point them back to the correct icons. Download “FileTypesMan v1.56”.
