I've got a number of shortcuts in the start menu (in particular C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs), when viewing that folder all icons are displayed correctly, yet on the start menu some items just have the unknown file type shown. This only seems to occur for a few applications even removing and reapplying the shortcut doesn't appear to solve the issue.

Any suggestions?
