open icon in map window broken

fresh windows 7 64 ultimate install on my new pc, finally upgraded after 7 years .

Only thing that bothers me now is the fact that one of the icons in a map window is broken.
I'm pretty sure this is not clear enough so i've added a picture to make things clear.

anybody know how to fix this?

I did what HarriePateman suggested and at first I thought it was solved because it does display a folder icon
when I select a folder. To clarify see the image below.

It does however still display the image in the OP for any .EXE file so I might be whining about nothing.

If you could please check if your windows does the same for .exe files that would be great, and whs to answer ur question; yes it does open when I double click the file.

I see the same generic icon for the .exe file. I think HarriePateman helped you get everything back to normal.

Hello Henkvdt,

This will fix the "Open" icon on the application toolbar and context menu. :)
