Windows 7: TaskBar Icons Not Showing Despite Recreating iconcache.db

TaskBar Icons To Left of Notifications Not Showing

Icons on my taskbar no longer show up. However they are in this folder:
C:\Users\(user-name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

I tried two things that didn't fix this:
1. recreated iconcache.db
2. replaced iconcache.db with a backup made before the problem began

Although programs I pin to the taskbar don't remain after a reboot, they are added showed to the \User Pinned\TaskBar folder with a number 2 in ().

Any advice on what I might try next?

Showing Icons In Taskbar ?
Hello, First, thanks to all for all the previous help; appreciate it very much. Re the bar on the bottom, which I guess is called the Taskbar: Have several icons on it, which is fine. But it won't accept any more new ones if I try to drag some onto it.
