Just deleting the icon cache isn't enough you have to rebuild it afterwards.

okay since this appears to be related specifically to utorrent and it's related files.
Open up utorrent, and go into preferences, under general click the button that says associate torrent file, and make sure check at startup is checked.

The utorrent icon association is supposed to be part of the application. If the above doesn't fix it, I would just redownload and install the application. It's only a 300k or so download anyhow.

Next time you turn off your machine make sure it does a full and proper shutdown.
(this should allow the new settings to take hold and hopefully solve your problem)
