Windows 7: Icons changing.

Icons changing.

Can someone please help me? When I open on my computer the icons for my drives recently just changed to some page like icon. My primary drives icon has stayed unchanged though. Even on the side panel when I scroll down they changed to this. Is there a way to get the default icons back?

I'm using the 7057 32bit build.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again!
