Usually what that 'generic' icon means is it can't find the location of the file the shortcut looks for. If it's an installed program/application it needs to find the .exe/Executable file that runs the program. Right-click it and choose Properties, will give the 'path' to where the .exe file is located. And it may simply that it needs the icon changed, same panel.

I know. Program is installed, path is also written properly in the properties. Changing icons or clearing icons cache didn't help.

Any other things I can try?
