Windows 7: Undefined icon beside "Open" when EXE file is selected

Undefined icon beside "Open" when EXE file is selected


The icon beside "Open" (upper-left) is undefined. This only happens for EXE files.

It seems it has been a problem since early Win7 days based from this post (#5).

I hope this gets fixed in Service Pack 1 or another Windows 7 update.
I do not have problems with my desktop icons, just the one above.

Any workaround for this?

Hi maxie,

It's the same for every EXE file I select.

It's not the icon of EXE file, but the icon beside "Open" is the problem.
