Your icons look smaller than the default size - have you changed the icon size at all? If you have, it may be that these programs don't have the correct size icons, so the default 'no icon' icon is shown.

Even changing the taskbar icon size.. The problem still persist... Any other solution?

Glad it helped.These things just happen windows mixes up icons from time to time.There's no real issue.
