    Black Square behind some of my Folder Icons

    Hi, I just had this problem earlier. I had this Folder that has a Black Square behind it. I tried refreshing and it didn't work. I tried moving my files from that folder into another it worked. Deleting it and After refreshing, 4 folders have been affected by this problem. Anyyone knows what the problem is and how can I fix it?
    Here is a screenshot of what It looks like. Folder Icons are Enclosed in Black Squares. Help. - Imgur
    I'm on Windows 10 by the way.
    Also, I have done the following things I've seen that cured problems slightly like mine:
    1. Create a New User Profile. This worked for a few hours and It happened again with some folders.
    2. I also tried resetting my Windows installation. Keeping files in my pc and just the programs and windows installation are new.
