I'm sorry I thought you wanted the generic icon instead of the specialized ones;
If you want the Icons completely gone:

- Go to "My PC"
- Select all Folders and/or Drives you want to be hidden
- Click "View"
- On the Bar that appears the 2nd to last button "Hide selected" will hide the icons

* On the left side of the button is a option to reveal the stuff you've hidden in this way so if you ever want to icons back you can select that option.

If you just want the Standard Icon's:

Enable the the function to view hidden files and folders. then delete the hidden file you find inside the folder it's as simple as that.

PS: Not sure if you need to restart the PC though after you deleted the file. Close the Window and reopen if the icon is still the same and there is no hidden file in the folder you'll have to reboot before it takes effect!
