I am not sure why, but today i went to work on pictures and most, but not all, of my folders in my pictures section have this dog eared sheet of paper over the folder. Why is this? The folders still open, but it drives me nuts because it's not supposed to be like this. I am running scans and nothing comes up so far.

Is there a way to get rid of this? Is it a virus?

Try deleting the iconcache.db file in your,
C:\Users\username\AppData\Local
folder. Then reboot the computer.

Or RT click and select 'open with' and select your default app.

This sometimes is seen from an Apple device.

I assume it's a jpeg?

This is my folders that contain my pictures. I just posted a picture of what it looked like.
