In Windows Explorer (W7) have a look at a folder you like. Then look in the "View" tab and see what is ticked - I use "large Icons" for pictures or movies. Do the same on the folder concerned. Is the "View" tick in the same place? If one of the "List" sub headings is ticked a different "Icon" appears - although this word "Icon" usually means a picture.
