All Drive Icons Gone ? What To Do ??

Yesterday all my drive icons dissapeared suddenly.I scanned my computer with Kaspersky Anti Virus and Super Anti Spyware,few infections were found in C drive and were fixed also but my drive icons did not come back.Then I scanned my regsitry and made some changes to it to get all my icons back.

To fix all the drive icons ,do the following steps :

>>First get any .ico files that you want to display as your drive icons.Say that icon file is gagan.ico and put in it in C:\WINDOWS\Icons.
>>Then open Start and click on RUN.
>>Type regedit in it and press Enter.
>>Registry Editor will open.
>>Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>>Software>>Microsoft>>Windows>>CurrentVersion>>Explorer>>DriveIcons

And under DriveIcons you will see names of your drives example C,D,E...

Suppose if your D drive icon is gone just go to DriveIcons and double click on it.

In the right hand side panel, right click on default and select modify and put in the path of your drive icon.
For example :

Note: Make sure that your icon should be be of .ico format.Otherwise your icon will not be displayed.
