talalanwar, Right click your desktop, choose Properties, under the Settings tab change the Color Quality from 32 bit to 16 bit, click Apply/OK. Now go back and change the Color Quality from 16 bit to 32 bit, click Apply/OK. This should rebuild the Iconcache.db file and may correct the icon problem.If this doesn't correct the problem try this.

Follow the instructions under "Recreate the Icon-Cache file by deleting it" for Windows XP at the link below.
