Restore wrong or unknown program icons in Windows 7 Start Menu

Should you see wrong or unknown program icons in your Windows 7 Start Menu, you may try the following steps to restore them.

  1. Open Windows Explorer.
  2. Copy and paste %userprofile%\AppData\Local onto the address bar.
  3. Find and delete IconCache.db. This file is hidden by default.
  4. Open Command Prompt.
  5. Run taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe on Command Prompt.
  6. Run start explorer on Command Prompt.

I hope this helps.
