Windows 7: Problem viewing custom icons in win explorer

Problem viewing custom icons in win explorer

I make my own icons to use on my system and had been saving them at 256 x 256. They work fine, but in win explorer they just show as a black square. If I downsize them (150 x 150), then I can view them just fine. I can't see anything in the folder options that is causing it and wondered if anyone has any ideas about it.
