Custom Icons Changing to default in taskbar.

I have changed my icons to custom ones but when i use the program, it stays to default.

(I use dell Dock and when i start the programs from there, thats when i get default icons,When they are started from the desktop they go to custom ones)

I have tried the default_ICO.reg and also the icon cache rebuild.

Any ideas on a fix?
