Windows 7 Problem With Desktop Icon.HELP!!

Problem with desktop Icons

I also got exactly same problem. Here the point to be noted is, this corrupted icons are only for the additionally installed software. Windows icons are intact as you can see in the attahment.

I have tried deleting the iconsdb cache, deleting the registry key from " HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\icons.

Attached are the screen shots of the corrupted icons.

Please any suggestion to solve this problem.
