    Hi Alvindale, welcome to Windows EightForums!
    Try restoring default desktop icons in Personalization/Change desktop icons.
    (Maybe uncheck "Allow themes to change desktop icons")
    Click Apply and OK and maybe restart Windows.

    Try clearing all five default icons, restart and then reinstate them. See what that does.

    K..., go to - C:\Users\*yourname*\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Windows System folder and see if the "This PC" icon is correct or not.
