Using personal icons on folders how to?

On PC #1 I can change a folder icon to whatever I want for easy I.D. But on PC #2 If I try the same to change the folder icon it doesn't change. (both r win7 x64)

On both machines only one user acct - Administrator.

Folder > properties > customize > change icon >etc
