If you have TweakUI installed, there is a button to 'rebuild icons' located under the repair tab (tweak UI can be found in the control panel and u can probably download it from microsoft). The icons just seem to get confused?!
In Windows Explorer, under Tools|File types, you can reset your file associations.
As to why they changed, a recently installed program probably did it 2 piss u off.
