Hello William,

You might see if you can manually change the icon back using the tutorial below. Be sure to also check the yell TIP box as well. The default C: icon path is: C:\Windows\System32\imageres.dll,-36

Drive Icon - Change

If not, then you can do a system restore using a restore point dated before you used "Drive Icon Changer" to undo it.

Hope this helps,
