I have Windows live messenger and Skype and Microsoft Office, so far they're the only ones I noticed that are doing this. But when I open them, the icon in the taskbar shows a basic windows classic icon, it does not show the proper icon for these programs. I pin the program to the taskbar, and then unpin it, and it shows up correctly for a while, but then goes back to classic windows icon. How can I try and fix this?

I have tried:

All It did was change my startorb back to a windows logo, and change the windows live messenger icon back to a different windows icon. Screenshot below:

As you can see it changed my startorb back, and changed the icon for Windows Live Messenger. I have no idea what's causing this, but so far it seems to only be those programs. They appear fine in my dock, and on my desktop. But they do not work on my taskbar, or in my startmenu.
