File icon corrupted after window 7 suddenly shuts down.

After surfing the net. watching videos from youtube, my computer suddenly shuts itself off. After rebooting my computer. The folder icon became corrupted and I can't seem to delete it. It gives the message ' windows is not responding '. After restarting the computer once again, the folder becomes accessible again but the file icon is still corrupted. I tried changing and restoring the icon but neither seem to work. It annoys me alot and I hope someone could help me :/
