Adobe PDF icon looks different on Sharepoint 2010

I have a Sharepoint Farm of 2 servers.  Sharepoint 2010 Foundation

Sharepoint server 2 blew up and I had to rebuild it.

I have tested functionality and everything works; however, the PDF icon looks different than the other server, and PDF's will only open externally.

I have looked for days on how to fix this and tried multiple things.

I found a way to fix the icon.

1) Add the icon to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\IMAGES\

2) Update docicon.xml under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web server extensions\12\Template\Xml\

Add: <Mapping Key="pdf" Value=" ICPDF.gif"/> under <ByExtension>

I found the icon on the other sharepoint (server1) server by going to the docicon.xml and searching for pdf.  I then copied the file to the other server at the following location.  C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\TEMPLATE\IMAGES\

Then I went to the docicon.xml on server 2 and changed where to look for the pdf.

<Mapping Key="pdf" Value="pdf16.png" OpenControl="PdfFile.OpenDocuments"/>

It was using ICPDF.gif which is the old PDF icon.
