Steam thumbnail problem.

Hey everyone I recently just finished my new custom build and it's great! One problem though, I installed steam and all is good, a few days later the steam thumbnail disappeared (not the games thumbnails, steams).

To most people it probably wouldn't bother them but it really bothers me, I'm a bit of a clean freak when it comes to my lovely desktop and even more so with the files on it so please don't say "it doesn't matter, leave it" because to me, it does!

Here is a picture of what I am talking about and if anyone knows a quick way to fix this that would be much appreciated!

Please see my problem here.

Thanks in advance,
Raavas

That'd bother me as well! Anyway, press the start button and right click Steam, then select properties. Make sure that the shortcut tab is selected and click the change icon button. Tell Windows to search in either C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe or C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe

If the icons aren't there then I think you'll need to reinstall steam!

This happened to me this week.
I replaced them with these:
http://customize.org/icons/50443

Or right click the icon there is a box that says' change icon' navigate to the steam folder and click on a steam icon.
