    Try changing the icon.
    Right click the shortcut and click Properties.
    On the Shortcut tab of Properties, click "Change Icon".
    If the icon you want isn't in the dialogue that opens, click the browse button and navigate to the programs EXE file.
    Select the desired icon and click OK then OK again to close the Properties.

    If that doesn't work, you may need to rebuild your iconcache.
    Follow the instructions HERE to do that.
