Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 64 Bit

Believe it or not I actually had this issue yesterday and got it resolved from a member of sevenforums :)

Here's how to fix it:
Download this .zip file and extract the imageres.dll from the zip to your Desktop. | MediaFire

Run this as an Administrator (evaluated):
System File Replacer by ~xuliikoo on deviantART

Then Browse to the default imageres (C:/Windows/System32) and then select the Browse on the Right on head over to your Desktop and select the one I give you.

Then rebuild your Icon Cache.

If you know how to manually replace System Files. Great, if not use this!
