Windows 7: Missing half icon

Not sure what it means
Missing half icon


After rebooting my computer, my program shortcuts in desktop don't show the whole icon, but only 1/4 of its original image. As you can see below. This doesn't affect on documents or folder, but only programs. I have tried to restore the system to an earlier point and used files named Add_Computer_Desktop_Icon and Remove_Shortcut_Arrow, but it doesn't solve the issue. Please Help

Thank You

Navigate to the .exe files for each program and create new desktop shortcuts from them. You can also try rebuilding the iconcache.

Also, if you boot into another account on your computer, do the icons look fine?

Have a look here and see if this helps you.

I would try removing and then replacing.
