Corrupt folder icons

HI all,
I am using win 7 home premium 64 bit edition.
whenever i open a dialog box for opening files (e.g. in browse option of "open with" of windows explorer OR like in file-> open of firefox), it doesn't show the folder icons properly.folder icons are shown as corrupt icons.this is the case in 'list' or 'small icon' or 'details'. icons are shown properly in larger icon view.
i have tried rebuilding icon cache and thumbnail cache. but it didnt helped.
plz somebody guide me

Welcome to Seven Forums darksoul. It sounds like somehow your shell icons are corrupted. For this I would 1st suggest running the System Files Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Let us know if problem continues. If you have 3rd party themes installed, you will have to repatch your system to use them again after.
