Here, after reading your post I tried it myself and found you're right, it does screw up file folder opening. Googled it for 5 seconds and quickly found this, just run it and they'll be back to normal.

It did for me..

Did you try to change the icon again, or did you change anything else for that matter?

Try a program to change the look, instead of fiddling in it urself, you'll just endup screwing up windows that way, believe me, its very delicate sometimes
