Odd problem - just wondering really....

I've just upgraded to Windows 8.1 & everything is working fine accept one oddity.
I have a USB 3 drive that is shown in both 'Computer Management' as 'USB 3.0' which is correct and if right clicking on the drive & selecting rename as 'USB 3.0', but in Explorer it has a different name (Portable Apps ) & the icon is blank (which I cannot get to go back to the default.)
Have a look at the attached images. Any solutions?

I guess that "USB 3.0" is the label (name) in the filesystem on the drive.
PortableApps.com and the icon (possibly a non-existent file) is probably specified in an Autorun.inf file on the drive.

Yes it is ejs:
[Autorun]
Icon=PortableApps\PortableApps.com\App\Graphics\usb.ico
Label=PortableApps.com

Can I edit this file?/

Solved: Thanks - just renamed it to autorun.bak & rebooted. Got icon back & the name is correct.
