Windows 7: Missing Icon on Docking Bar (bar next to windows globe)

Missing Icon on Docking Bar (bar next to windows globe)

I have tried the trick of right click icon > properties > change icon > and I select an icon that is there but it never seems to load.

Not a deal breaker but annoying none the less.

Is there any other way to get this back?

Thanks!

Try these two tutorials.
Icon Cache - Rebuild
Thumbnail Cache - Clear and Reset

If they don't help try an SFC Scan

May I ask what the actual program is?

I'm assuming resetting the Thumbnail Cache worked because your link is to the SFC Scan but you said you did the thumbnail cache?
