    Windows 7 SP1

    I had this same problem, but for me, all it took to fix it was a cold reboot. That is, I shut the computer down, turned off power completely, then turned power back on and booted up.

    The black icons were still there for a moment, but one by one, they seemed to fix themselves.

    Windows 7,10

    I also have this problem, which randomly appears from time to time.

    To fix this you need to move the folder.jpg or any file out of the folder
    then you can put it back in the folder.

    This will fix it.

    Unchecking readonly as suggested by another user, does not solve this problem.

    This is definitely a bug with windows 10.
    We need a permanent solution from microsoft.
    Someone please report this bug to microsoft.
