If one or more of your icons are not displaying correctly, or your icon cache is corrupted, then you might consider rebuilding the icon cache to reset and reload the icon images into the icon cache.
Note This will not help with any of the following icon issues:
* A shortcut's icon that is not displayed properly due to the source of the shortcut being moved or deleted. You may need to recreate a new shortcut directly from the source (ex: program's exe) file to replace it instead.
* All icons for a specific file extension display the wrong icon. This may be do to setting the wrong association for what program to open the file extension instead. You can restore the default file extension's associationsto fix this....
This will allow you to restore the default registry entries and program associations for the Windows 7 file extension type of your choice.
This can be helpful for example when a file extension type opens with the wrong program by default, has the wrong icon, or is missing or corrupted in the registry. Downloading the .reg file for the selected file extension in the tutorial below, will restore that file extension back to default for all of these items above.
You will need to be logged on to an administrator account to apply these. As a backup, you should create a restore point before applying the downloaded default file extention below. This way you can do a System Restore to go back to before you applied it if needed.
