    Certain programs appears as blank sheets on taskbar in Windows 7

    When I check the taskbar in my PC running on Windows 7, I found some programs like Internet Explorer, iTunes and MS Outlook 2007 are shown as blank sheets. I tried to create shortcuts on desktop and make necessary changes in properties. Still, the issue remains on the system. Can anyone suggest me a solution to avoid this problem?

    hi my dear friend...this problem may cause with the Virus or OS error

    most of the times the above problem appears when the pc gets effected with the virus only

    so, first of all Install the good antivirus and update the antivirus Database then SCAN the full PC

    if you are unable to solve this issue after the SCAN also

    simply restore your windows and solve the issue that is

    go to start menu and open the control panel

    after that click on the system and security option and choose the BACKUP and RESTORE option

    then click on restore system settings or computer option

    now click on OPEN SYSTEM RESTORE option ( if you already have restore point or image then go with the advance recovery methods )

    then click on NEXT button and after click FINISH button then the process will begins

    and wait untill the completion of process .............and the problem will be resolved

    ALL THE BEST......!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi.
    Follow the below steps:
    Step 1: click start>right click on program in start menu>properties>shortcut tab>change icon>browse (navigate to exe for this program)>select exe file>open>select appropriate icon from options shown.>ok>ok>if you get a message saying only an administrator can do this, click continue to apply the change.

    Step 2: start a session of the application & while it is running right click the taskbar icon>unpin this program>right click again (shows icon now because it represents the running app, not the shortcut)>Pin this program.

    Thank you.
