Go into the properties of those and see if the icon is there in change icon and if it is try changing it to something else and then change it back and see if that fixes it.

Windows 7 RTM 7600

I have the same problem on RTM 7600 64bit.

Some icons wont show up, ie MSN.

When the taskbar option "always combine" is set, they wont show up. But if changed to "never combine" or "combine when full" they are working fine.

Also, if I try to change the icon of msn I get this error:

"Cant find file

any advice is much appreciated.

that happens because you are trying to pin a Shortcut. Go to the shortcut, right click, open directory. Look for the file the shortcut is related to and pin it to the taskbar. Now you should see the icon.
