    Hi Qwerty77
    Try this:

    1) Right click the folder and choose properties.
    2) Click on the Customize Tab.
    3) Choose Change Icon at the bottom
    Pick an icon you want top use for the folder,then click ok.

    You may have inadvertently clicked on a "white" space when choosing icons. (It is possible to create invisible folders in that manner, hence the black box.
    Try right clicking on your desktop first, and click refresh.
    Hope this helps...

    Here's a tutorial that should help you:
    Hidden Files and Folders Option - Add or Remove
    Let me know if it solves the issue or not.
