Taskbar running programs Icon problem.

Hello! Greetings!

I have a problem.. When I open certain programs.. The Icon in the taskbar is different from the real Icon of the program.. (Check attached image)

*Info*
I ran VLC Media player and the Icon was like that [Check image].
So as some programs I run..
*Info end*

Is there any way to fix the icons?
If so.. Please give me a brief instruction so I will be able to understand and lessen the trouble for you people.

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.
