Sometimes internet shortcut icons will turn into globes, and there is a way to fix that.
  1. Close all folder windows that are currently open.
  2. Launch Task Manager using the CTRL+SHIFT+ESC key sequence, or any other way.
  3. In the Process tab, right-click on the Explorer.exe process and select End Process.
  4. Click the End process button when asked for confirmation. This will remove the taskbar and desktop, but is easily fixable (mentioned later in this thread).
  5. From the File menu of Task Manager, select New Task (Run…)
  6. Type CMD.EXE, and click OK
  7. In the Command Prompt window, type the commands one by one and press ENTER after each command:
CD /d %userprofile%\AppData\Local
DEL IconCache.db /a
EXIT

  1. In Task Manager, click File, select New Task (Run…)
  2. Type EXPLORER.EXE, and click OK.
It should be fixed after this.
