>>> Try getting Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner, <http://www.northernsoftworks.com/mountainlioncachecleaner.html>. Choose `Cache Cleaning' and then `Light Cleaning' but check all three check boxes (Clean Local Cache, Clean System Cache, Clean All Users Caches). You'll have to reboot. After rebooting first open TeXShop and create a new document on your Desktop; it should have the new icon. Then open the folder(s) with your other tex documents and all should be well.

Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner is supposed to work with Lion, etc., too.
As someone else suggested you can do Safe Boot too: press and continue to hold down the Shift key just after the boot tone sounds until you see a screen with a progress bar. The system is checking, cleaning out and rebuilding several caches (including Launch Services) and will boot into a safe mode, i.e., no special kernel extensions, etc. Once that is done simple restart the system back into normal mode.
Note: in any case `Show Icon Preview' in the `Viewing Options' pane (press Cmd-J with the window selected) should be unchecked.
