Program's icon changed....?

So yesterday after finishing my game yesterday i quit out and saw that some of my program's icon changed, the programs that changed the icon was like advanced system care malware bytes fraps....and it only seemed to be those 3. I researched about it and tried deleting icon cache and it didn't seem to work. I only attempt it once maybe if I try again it might work, but do you guys have any suggestions?

First of all, Right click on the icon, Choose properties in the context menu , and click on Change icon button there. it will bring you to the change icon dialog. Select teh appropriate icon > ok > apply > ok.

If, the change icon button is grayed out :
reinstall malwarebytes and the other program, but not the advanced system care.

Finally, restore all the backup made by advanced system care, and uninstall it. It is strongly recommended .
