    Hmm... Have you tried right clicking on the icon, choose properties and then look for "Change Icon"?

    Damn....
    Try running the sfc scanner:
    Find command prompt, right click on it and click run as admin. Type:
    sfc /scannow
    Press enter and await results.

    Once you've run the above then delete the icon cache using the method found on this link under windows 7:
    Clear Icons Cache – Guide for Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10

    See if that helps?
