Icons duplicating on taskbar - please help

Hi, I have just I am running Windows 7 64-bit and I have just installed the latest itunes on to my computer as it alerted me that I had an old version.

My problem is that I have pinned iTunes to my taksbar and when I click on the icon the start the application, windows creates a new icon at the end of my taskbar for iTunes instead of simply "highlighting" the orginal icon that is pinned. I have screen shotted the taskbar with a picture below.

Please can somebody tell me how to resolve this problem. I have tried making a new shortcut for iTunes and then pinning it, i have tried pinning the original .exe from /iTunes but nothing seems to work

Try unpinning iTunes from the taskbar and then Pin the new iTunes to the taskbar. That should resolve the issue.
