Windows 7: Icons for certain programs are getting replaced with others in taskbar

Icons for certain programs are getting replaced with others in taskbar

Dunno why this is happening but for some reason the programs Quicktime and Adobe Reader are taking on the icon of some other random program in my task bar. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling both but it didn't seem to work. Is there anything I can do to fix this? It's really strange.

Your icon cache may be corrupted.

Do not know if this will help or not: Icon Cache - Rebuild

I uninstalled the program thats icon was replacing the other two programs. This corrected the problem, however as soon as I reinstalled the program (image eye) the problem returned. I kind of like that program though so I don't want to uninstall it. I guess I'll try the above method.

It would be great if that would help, but if it does not or only helps for a while, here is more information, a fix-it, and a registry fix from MS: Icons change incorrectly in Windows

That's a great help Anak because not only does it offer the poster an opportunity to fix the problem himself, but the site also has a Diagnose + Repair link from Microsoft to have Windows fix it.
Rep+ to you.
