Hello Verean,

Double check to see if the yellow TIP box at the top of the tutorial below may be the issues with a autorun.inf file. If not, then you can try Option One or Option Two to manually change the icon to the default icon using this path: C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-36


Drive Icon - Change

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Did you try both options in the tutorial?

Before doing something like that, see if doing a system restore using a restore point dated when it was displayed properly may be able to fix it for you.

Sorry, but this really no reason to reinstall unless something is not working. My C icon is like yours - plain and simple. It never bothered me.
