Tried both your suggestions ;but still remains, thought i'd do a system restore as you suggested
ahhhh no restore points for some reason any other ideas?

First thing i would do is uninstall any software relating to the psp from add and remove programs and reboot.This may set the icon back to default.

I think you can change the icon value in the registry,but unsure what string it is..sorry.
