Hello StealthyBoss and Arc,

This is this way by default in Windows 7, but this will allow you to change the icon to the correct application icon.

Open Application Toolbar and Context Menu Icon - Fix

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I was facing the same problem too. Always thought the default icon was meant to be like that. Anyways, icon is fixed. Thanks brink.

Thanks a lot, Shawn. BTW, I never looked at it before StealthyBoss said about it.
