Windows 7: MP4 file type small icones turned blank, out of obvious solutions

MP4 file type small icones turned blank, out of obvious solutions

Suddenly, small icons for the MP4 file type on my system turned blank. All other icon sizes for the type work correctly. The file type is registered to Windows Media Player and opens/works correctly.

The solutions i tried:
- Going to Default Programs and picking "set this program as default" for WMP
- Setting another program as default, then reverting back to WMP
- Setting the icon manually using this Change a File Type?s Icon in Windows 7

None of that worked. The only thing that works is when i associate MP4 manually with MPC-HC from within MPC-HC, in which case the file type gets an icon. But if i go to default programs and re-associate with WMP, the icon is gone. However if i associate MP4 with MPC-HC from within Default Programs, the associations are changed but the icon remains blank. I would like to restore the original icon and keep the WMP associations.
