When installing drivers for my Gigabyte motherboard, I installed a "Games" link which ran from a batch file. This was pinned to the taskbar by default.
As a result, it changed the icon for cmd.exe to the icon for Games.
I uninstalled the Games and it got rid of the icon leaving it with a white rectangle thing (I can post screenshots on request). There is also a link on the jumplist to open Games, which just opens a cmd window.
I've tried rebuilding my icon cache as per Changing Windows 7 pinned taskbar icons, but this only removed the white rectangle icon, leaving me with no real icon.
c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe still has the appropriate icon in explorer, just not on the taskbar.
Any ideas on how to fix this annoyance?
