i locked a folder containing some pictures using a software. firstly the folder had icon of that software,
but suddenly one day i dont know how the icon changed to the icon of control pannel!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now on double clicking on that folder control pannel opens!. in c-prompt the folder is having a weired number attached to it like New Folder{21EATA19-1060-10B2DD} like that.

1. Open Properties of the icon
2. Select Customize, then Change icon
3. Enter '%systemroot%\system32\shell32.dll' for the file.
4. Select a folder icon from the icons below
5. Click ok

I don't think the poster is overly concerned with the icon picture on these files but instead is concerned about not being able to open the files.

Uninstalling the software certainly isn't going to help, and may prevent the files from opening. What is the software you used? Did you reinstall it?
