Desktop/document icons revert back to white sheet after I change them. Why? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Basically what the title says, after changing the icon image... right click on shortcut icon > properties > web document > change icon.... change the icon, (.ico file) > Ok.

    I continue to change the icon to that of a streaming service I use and it works well. After restarting my computer or putting it into hibernate mode, the icons lose the image I gave them and change to the first standard icon image - a white sheet with the top right corner slightly folded over.

    I can easily change the icons back to what I had originally set them as, but it becomes a pain to have to do that everytime I start my computer, and the more icons I change, the more difficult it becomes for me. 

    If there's a solution, please please please let me know. Thanks <3
