    This is a recent clean install of windows about a week ago. Not sure when they changed but I do remember having the icon correct after the initial install. I've followed the instructions to rebuild icon cache for Windows 10 at It did not work.

    Any suggestions would be great.

    You could try running sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt.
