    For the exe file right click on the exe file in the program files directory then select the "change icon" option.

    Just so we are clear, are you looking for help with the shortcut, or for the actual .exe file the shortcut points to?

    I don't suppose you could tell us the name of the program..?

    Problem solved, I shut down my PC instead of restarting it and the icons are back, The problem was in the actual .exe, Thanks.
