  1. This happens to me with updates to itunes - whenever i update itunes, it will require me to delete its shortcut and re-pin to taskbar to get its icon back

    for outlook - im not so sure as i have the same, but never loose its icon... but try the above for this as well (might also have to do with microsoft updates to office products - but like i said never happens to me)

    also itunes is the only program i have on my taskbar that does this (chrome - outlook 2010 - windows media player - itunes - steam - photoshop cs5 - photoshop cs4 - 3d studio max 2011 64bit - hulu desktop)
  2. thanks, however my itune & outlook icons have lost their graphics as desktop icons as well as if they are in the taskbar. Also when I click start and go to the default icons in start menu the itunes and outlook icons are there have also lost graphics ?
