Have you tried to change the view of the page to details... and refresh the page,
Because it seems to only appear this way in Programs and features/ if that is the case I wouldn't worry about it,
The different icon could just reflect the uninstall tool file associated with the program ?
Start menu list and desktop Icons are fine as you stated earlier.

I know but it is frustrating. I'm sure I saw there were a way to manually select the icon.

just out of interest how often do you go into pros and features to view the icons.

i generally only go in whenever i am uninstalling something and dont really care what the icons look like in there.
if it was on my taskbar it would be a different matter.
