Hello Elephance, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if OPTION TWO in the tutorial below may be able to change the folder back to the default icon.

Folder Icon - Change Windows 7 Default Folder Icon

If not, then you can try a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened. As a last resort, you can do a repair install to fix it without losing anything.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Looks like you have been using Stardocks Iconpackager, still not sure they have made it 100% compatible yet, all their products seem a bit flaky to me and I usually only try them and end up doing a system restore because they mess things up, if you have a recent restore point from when you installed it then I would suggest that you use that, if not then you might need to do a clean install if Brink's methods fail.

What about sfc /scannow? This scan removed Grim's black icon from my machine
