    hmm
    It maybe due to a virus.
    Scan your PC for any viruses and then try restoring it.
    Even if u hav installed another browser like Mozilla and set it as default, the icon changes ;)

    What is the icon like? Could you post it here? Try this http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/1153/ not sure if it will work though.
    Ah yes ... there is a software from MS itself called TweakUI, get it, it has an option under repair section to repair icons ...

    - really bad meaning not clear ? try changing colors to 16 bit or 32 bit in display properties > settings .

    - if u have another browser like opera / netscape / fire fox , make it default to have its icon on the page . when u start ie it will ask if ie has to be default browser choose yes and icons should change . if u dont get the msg , go to internet options > programs > check the option below which asks it to check if its the default browser . if its already checked , uncheck it > apply > recheck it > apply > restart ie and choose yes to default browser

    - choose repair installation from add/rem prog for ie

    - if u dont like the icon , go to mycomputer > view > folder option > file types , look for htm html and highlight it and click edit button , u have an option to change icon there , choose iexplore.exe when browsing to get original icon

    Well.. When you double click on it what program opens up ..?

    and also , Right click on any HTML file and tell what actions are there .. And which is the default action ...?

    And with which software you want to open HTML files ..? IE or Opera .. ?
