Well jerry it worked .I removed it with revo uninstaller and cleaned the registry and leftover file and after new install it worked and now icon changing is also working.Thank for the for your comment, I completely overlooked that it might be solved by complete removal and reinstalling it,since i had installed new version on top of old version to try and fix problem but it did'nt work. Sorry for the late reply my Internet broke down.
