How did you download the file? The reason I ask is that maybe the software that you used to download the file still has a handle on it. Like uTorrent or something. The sofware may think that you still have the file. Try clearing the cache of the software you used to download the file (IE or firefox or uTorrent or the like)

I used my browser (Chrome), to download the mp3.

Dutchcoffee,

Just for giggles, see if adding a couple of images into the folder may toggle the preview image of the folder to change or update. You may need to refresh (F5) the window. Afterwards, you could just delete the images.

This is quite odd, indeed. I tried adding a few images to the download folder like you said, Brink, however, that did not change anything.

Strange indeed. What is the location of this Downloads folder?

Is it your C:\Users\(user-name)\Downloads folder?

Ah, ok. That's why it wasn't working before then.

You can use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to make sure it's set to it's default location.
User Folders - Restore Default Location
Afterwards, if the icon has not already been restored, you can use Method Two in OPTION TWO in this other tutorial below to restore the defaul icon.
