problem with icons on taskbar (wrong icons or missing icons)

Hi all
(I'm italian, excuse me for my bad english).
I have a pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have a problem with some icons on taskbar: sometimes some applications are displaying the wrong icons, sometimes, as you can see (screenshot), I don't see some icons: sometimes a few are missing (this time I have 8 icons of about 20!).

If I restart my pc, some icons return, but many still missing or are wrong!






So I launched this tool from microsof (I think it rebuilt icon cache, but I'm not sure): In Windows le icone vengono modificate in modo non corretto
but it doesnt' fix the problem, see this screenshot after using this tool from microsoft:





now as you can see some applications are displaying the wrong icons and 2 icons are still missing ...is there any fix for this problem? thanks!!

Vittorio.

thank you for your quick reply boohbah!

But this fix is only for these 3 system icons:
  • The Network icon
  • The Volume icon
  • The Power icon
and with these 3 icons I don't have problems ...I have problems with other icons

Either update, stop it from startup or remove that Spyder 1.2.3 Utility Program, and see what happens.

I'm thinking it messes too much with the display, and causes problems elsewhere in the OS.
But, be warned 3.0 and 4.0 can still be buggy.

spyder utility is the program that I use ALWAYS (because I am a photographer and this program creates a color profile for my monitor) and I want to use this program
...I used this program also in my old pc (with windows XP) and I didn't have any problem with icons
