i am having an issue with my windows 7 icons not showing the proper picture on the taskbar. i recently reinstalled windows 7 ultimate. all of the programs open properly when you click them but they just do not show the proper icon. it just looks like a broken image and they are all the same. thanks for any help on how to resolve this

is this for document files or program icons? or both?
is this only happening on the task bar and explorer is ok?

right click on task bar and see if you have "Small icons" option checked, maybe the icons don't have the smaller version

Hmm, interesting, could you take a screenshot of it?

you can use a website like to upload the screenshot and copy the link for the forum into your post.

also can you include the screenshot of your task bar properties window

right click desktop > personalize > window color > advanced settings
or start > type in color > change windows colors and metrics

in the combo box select Icon, the default size for me is 32. If yours is the same, try changing it to like 30 and then back to 32.
