Reset icon cache

open a cmd prompt as admin

C:
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
DEL IconCache.db /a

May need at least one restart to see change.

Yes, type them in sequence as you have correctly listed.

Also, the link that A Guy has included will get you a batch file that will run the process for you when you need it again. And you will need it again. This is a common problem.
