    I think the "desktop.ini" file may have been corrupted. So for that you just need to replace "desktop.ini" file present in the corrupt folder with default one on your system. You need to download the "desktop.ini" file from the official Microsoft website and just need to Right-click on the file and select "Save Link As." or "Save Target As" and paste in the folder which is showing corrupt icon. Windows will ask to overwrite the existing file, select "Copy & Replace".

    Any way deleting the Desktop.ini does not cause any data loss on your system. You can get the Desktop folder icon in the explorer, from where you can try to restore it back on your system.
