..... if it is present there, Icon Cache - Rebuild should work perfectly .

No need for extra programs - Click on Start --> Computer --> right click on C drive and click properties, elect the tools tab and click on Check Now under Error Checking, and automatically fix errors and check attempt to fix bad sectors.

Does this work?

Most welcome to the forums , ubalay

IconViewer is just an Windows Explorer Extension (though a third party tool) . If an icon is not present in the system , no fix can bring it back . You are put it back manually (whatever alternative you may use to do it).

And if it is present there , fixes will do it ( like rebuilding icon cache or sfc scannow command) .
