Wrong Icon for Hard Drive

One of the partitions on this system constantly displays the icon for PaintShop Album instead of the normal drive icon. The other partiton on the drive is correct.

I have tried the repair option in TweakUI without success. Please does anyone have any ideas as to how I can restore the correct icon.

I noticed the other day that in XP Pro you can just right-click>properties on the drive icon in My Computer and there is an Icon tab, giving the option to easily change it. You don't happen to be using XP Pro, do you?

Yes I am, but there is no Icon tab in Properties.

Have you tried uninstalling PSA and then re-installing it....TT

Fixed it. It came preinstalled with the PC, and I had copied the setup files from the "recovery disc" to this partition in case I ever needed them. Deleting them put the icon back as it should be.
