Windows 7: Corrupted folders icons Windows 7

Corrupted folders icons Windows 7

I was trying to change folders icons but this is the result:

Their stupid white papers are still behind the icon.

Using Resource Hacker, Restorator 2007, IcoFX or Regedit is the same.
I've resetted icons and thumbnails cache.

How can I delete them? Blank icon?
