    Personal folder icons corrupted?


    Hi, I am using Windows Vista Home Premium and a have a small but very
    annoying issue, on my "Downloads" personal folder in C:/Users/[myname], the
    regular, cool blue and green folder is replaced by a regular manilla folder
    with an icon of album art (from a song) I put in the folder, I know this
    applies to normal folders, but I miss the really nice looking Downloads icon,
    could someone please help me out, I don't want to have to make a whole other
    user account!

    Hi lance_world,

    Try this and see if it will help:
    1. Right click on the "Downloads" folder
    2. Click Properties
    3. Click Customize tab
    4. Click "Restore Default" button
    5. Click OK

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    You could try this. Move the contents of your Downloads folder to a
    temporary New Folder (except the desktop.ini file, should it exist). Then
    delete the Downloads folder. Then type "shell:downloads" (without quotation
    marks) in the Start Search box of the Start Menu, and press Enter on your
    keyboard. A new Downloads folder will be created, with the appropriate
    (hidden,system) desktop.ini file inside it, giving the folder the default
    blue/green folder icon. You can then move your items back to the new
    Downloads folder from the temporary New Folder, and then delete New Folder.
