Try a system restore to BEFORE the problem. See if that works.

Another thing to try:
You can try resetting the icon cache by making a change to the cache and then changing it back.

Here's how:
1- Right click an empty area of your Desktop
2-Select Properties
3-Select the Appearance tab
4-Choose the Advanced button
5- In the "Item:" drop down menu, click the entry titled 'Icon'
6- Using the up or down arrows, change the number displayed
Click OK
Using the above instructions, change the value of step #6 back to its original position.

or maybe this?
