    Documents folder icon restore?

    So one day after a hard day at school (finals. omfg I am going to hate math
    forever.) i decided to go and play Team Fortress 2 to relax. When my computer
    booted up lo and behold! my "Documents" folder's icon went awol. Instead of
    the blue transparent folder with a bunch of papers in it, the standard folder
    icon (the empty opaque yellow folder) stood in its place. How do I get the
    original icon back? Customization of the Documents folder gives no choices
    for changing the icon. What do I do? It's a great eyesore.
