Start Menu custom icons not showing.

Hey guys, i'm having this rather strange problem, where i change the icons for my shortcuts in the start menu, restart Explorer.exe and the icons don't change..

Although in the taskbar when the program is run from the custom icon'd shortcut, the icon shows up.

Is there something im missing here?

I used to be able to to this flawlessly before, but it's just not working for me today.

Odd as it seems, deleted the icon cache for the 6th time, and it randomly works now :S
