Ive just played around with the folder view sizes and I think ive got what you may have.It seems the icon depends on the folder size although mine reset again at reboot, or possibly if you open adobe reader they change as thats what mine did

Heres how for future refeence or for smaller shots just use the "snipping tool"

Screenshot with Paint

Do the icons change if you use different sizes.

I can get them to change to either icon by opening adobe reader and re saving each one in a new location but thats not a fix.Im unsure of why they change or whether they will stay like that mine have up to now

Did you log off and on again or reboot.The reg edit requires it
