Windows 7: generic icon for app that does contain an icon

generic icon for app that does contain an icon

I am trying to show an icon for the glary utilities integrator on my taskbar, but the only thing I get is an ugly generic icon. This same icon is shown when I go to the containing folder with explorer. However on the app launcher toolbar the correct icon is shown for this application. And when I look at the properties tab for the taskbar item it also shows the correct icon. Just not in explorer, and not in the taskbar. ???

I'm running build 7100, 32bit win 7. It's not urgent, just annoying. Can anyone help?
Thanks in advance.

Must be a glitch in 7100 which to me I ran like 2 hours than moved on. 7100 RC was a very bad idea (IMHO). Personally I think it did more to make people stop using Win7 than any thing else.
