Default Icons not showing

The other day I turned on my computer and the icons for some folders and files weren't showing up. I attached a picture of what it looks like. I don't think I did anything myself that would cause this. I just ran spybot and it didn't help, so I'm posting this while I try some other programs.

Any help is appreciated

Default Re: Icons not showing

It just looks like it lost the path to the folder icon. Right click Properties and there should be an option under there to change icons. Just go back to the System32 folder under Windows i believe and you should find them again.
