See if you have a desktop.ini or autorun.inf file in the folder.

Try the 'Change the Hard Drive Icon' VBS file from Kelly's Korner at:
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
Go down to the 'Cosmetic Tweaks' section and select 'Change the Hard Drive
Icon' via the Drop box, then downloadd.

Check for the file "Autorun.inf" in the "affected" drive's root folder. If you don;t file this file, open Registry Editor and goto:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\DriveIcons]
Double-click the driveletter and set the "DefaultIcon" value to blank.

Restart Windows

Peter,

It's not the briefcase icon. To reset the defaults icon for My Documents,
type this command from Start/Run dialog:

rundll32 mydocs.dll,PerUserInit

The previous command fixes the My Pictures, My Music icons only. Here is the
registry edit for My Documents icon.

Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CLSID\{450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}\DefaultIcon

In the right-pane, double-click (default) and set it's value to
%SystemRoot%\system32\shell32.dll,-235

Or, simply via the User interface.

R-click Desktop, Properties, Desktop tab, Customize Desktop
Click My Documents and 'Restore Default'
Click OK, OK

That sets the icon to %WinDir%\system32\mydocs.dll,0

Hi Wesley Vogel,

Thanks for your information.
I had browsed to the following link and find the suggestion. Under the "No
Icons Available" section, it was suggested to type a particular link to get
the new icon. However, if I do not the like or prefer the icon under this
folder, is there any other web-site that I can choose and download more
icons.

Thanks for your asssitance.
Gigi

Howdy Gigi,

Right click folder | Properties | Customize tab | Change Icon button |
Browse button | Navigate to where you have Icons stored. I.e. Somewhere
that you have saved icons, like C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name Here\My
Documents or %homepath%\ICONS

Change Icon button
[[Click to change the icon that represents the folder in all views except
Thumbnails.]]

You can also Browse to C:\WINDOWS\system32\moricons.dll from the Change Icon
button.

[[You cannot customize the default icon for a folder in Windows; however,
you can make a shortcut to a folder and change the look of the shortcut
icon. ]]
