I have changed the icons on the shortcuts in the folder %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar.
I have tried logging off and back on, and rebooting, but the icons remain the same.
Am I doing it wrong?

I found that I could create a shortcut to the application, customizing it as I see fit (name/icon), and then run the application from my shortcut. At that point I could pin it and it would use my new icon.
I have a similar problem with the icons in the Win7 taskbar and logging on/off and rebooting seems to be hit and miss.
