Yes, these are excellent solutions to clear the icon cache and restore the system default icons - but these do not remove the image displayed "over" the icons.

Just that image may be somehow corrupted / removed, so Windows displays a generic image instead.
A quick thing to check: do you have AUTORUN.INF file in the root folder of the drive? If so, please delete it.
(it may be hidden, so you may need to enable display of hidden files to view it).
Not sure, but it is possible that a malware created the AUTORUN.INF file and points on some mailicious file. That may be removed by your antivirus software - but its reference in the AUTORUN.INF may still there. So the file is no longer available - but something still points on that, that's why the generic image remains displayed.
