    TweakUI Icon rebuilding should work, but in case it don't you might want to show all hidden files and system files and look for "autorun.ini" in the root folder of your drives. Well, it there is one....delete it.

    Happy trying...

    Likeatalltree, Another fix that usually works is to start your computer in SAFE mode then restart it in Normal mode. This will rebuild the IconCache.db file and many times corrects the problem.
