comment What causes icon corruption in Windows 7?
If deleting IconCache.db doesn't work, try running ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache. The latter worked when Windows lost the icons of pinned programs that reside on a network drive that's manually mapped after starting Windows.

I have this problem with pinned programs that reside on a network drive that's manually mapped after starting Windows. Deleting IconCache.db alone didn't work. This command recreated the icons: ie4uinit.exe -ClearIconCache

For the record, to create a bootable openSUSE USB drive, the recommended way is to use LiveWriter. See my answer.
