Windows 7: Devices and Printers Icons

Devices and Printers Icons

Hi guys,

I have noticed that half of the icons under Devices and Printers have vanished

I have the 'yes automatically' option clicked in this option screen

Is there some way to force windows to download the icons again?

I would even be happy if i could get the default non enhanced icons back.
