Windows 7: icon appearance on taskbar changes by itself

icon appearance on taskbar changes by itself

Several times already, for no reason some program icons on the taskbar (pinned to taskbar) change into icons that look like the program is missing. Upon clicking the icon, as the program opens, it changes to the correct icon and keeps it until the program is closed.

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

Hope this helps,
