Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have one question. Why are you using a 32-bit defrag program on a 64-bit operating system?

have you tried restarting the computer after re selecting the icon?

I had this happen with Tuneup Utilities 2010 and Acronis True Image, it took a couple times of re selecting the icon and restarting the computer for the icon to stick.

Hi, try this and see if it helps.
In order to fix the problem where shortcut icons turn to blank icon, try to refresh or rebuild the cache database for icons.
To refresh and reset the icons cache, go to the following folder:
To see the hidden AppData folder, go to Organize -> Folder and Search Options
-> View tab, and select Show hidden files, folders and drives, and uncheck Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
Once inside the folder, delete IconCache.db. Create a new file named IconCache.db, and set it to Read Only attribute in Properties (if the file is not read only, the cache won’t be reset). Then restart the computer
. Remove the Read Only attribute of IconCache.db file, and the icons cache will be refreshed. The step will restore the desktop shortcut icons to their lawfully icons.
