as i said earlier, i have the same issue with malware bytes anti malware, the icon turns generic after some restarts. and then the only work around is to reinstall the application. However, go to %userprofile%\AppData\Local and delete the IconCache.db file and restart your computer. It helps sometimes. Worth a try.
