Windows 7: Desktop Icon for Software incorrectly displayed

Desktop Icon for Software incorrectly displayed

Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with a desktop icon that is displaying incorrectly.

Basically when the shortcut is placed on the desktop, the shortcut icon is displaying a different icon that what it should, however, if I then drag the shortcut into say, a folder, the shortcut icon is then correct.

I have tried:

Deleting the Thumbs.db
Deleting the Icon Cache & Restarting
Re-installing the Software


This is only apparent on one of my windows 7 machines, on the other three machines I have the problem does not occur.

I appreciate any help given.

Is it one icon in particular or is this a recurring problem ?

It is one icon in particular, The correct icon is displayed when viewing the properties > Change Icon settings, it is just not displaying it on the desktop as expected.
