Sorry I didn't see this earlier (work week ). The 2 icon issue has been well discussed from my memory, a "fix" was this:

Quote:
To solve this issue do the following:
Start Google Chrome (this creates a new taskbar icon);
Right click on the new icon and select "Pin this program to taskbar";
Go to: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar;
You will see the two pinned Google Chrome.lnk here. Delete the Google Chrome.lnk and make Google Chrome (1).lnk readonly (Right Click -> Properties -> General tab -> tick Read-only -> Click OK);
