Windows 7: Duplicate Icon When Playing Slideshow!

Duplicate Icon When Playing Slideshow!

When I open a picture and start a slideshow, there are two icons that appear on the taskbar. One says “Windows Photo Viewer,” and the other says, “Photo View Slide Show.” The taskbar is set to always combine icons and I am unable to “Pin” a photo to the taskbar. The issue is rather frustrating and annoying!
Thanks in advance,
