Windows 7: Missing Icons on Start Menu

Missing Icons on Start Menu

Hello everyone.

I am wondering how will I restore my icons on the start menu. Below is the screenshot.



When I click on that icon the program is working. It seems like the only wrong here is the icon. Maybe a cache issue I guess.

Help is much appreciated.

Thanks.

Rebuilding the icon cache might restore them:

Have you also tried right-clicking on the icon, selecting Properties, and then Change Icon? You can select another icon there and then just hit Apply, OK.

Yup, it works flawlessly.

That was the first solution that comes out of my mind, sadly it doesn't fix the issue.
