Problem: Adobe Acrobat Opens with Illustrator Icon???

Adobe Acrobat opens with and displays the Illustrator Icon. There is an Illustrator Adobe Illustrator icon and an Adobe Acrobat DC Illustrator icon. All applications (and the CC app itself) are up to date. I have not changed install locations or messed with any of the core software directories. I'm not quite sure when it happened. I don't remember this being an issue in CC2015, but it is now. This is the first time I have used Acrobat since the CC 2017 update.

I am running the latest version of Windows 10. If you look in the task bar inside of the red box there is a Adobe Acrobat thumbnail preview from hover, but the icon is clearly Ai. Any ideas? It's really not too big of a deal for me, but it is strange.

Also, this happens whether I open documents from InDesign, double-click on PDF files, menu open with "Open with", click on the actual or the Illustrator Acrobat it's not just an isolated case of a program pulling the wrong tray graphic. They all are.

Mines doing that but with Photoshop's icon. I changed my default editor of .ico files to photoshop, and that's when it started.
