    These icons correspond to Windows Explorer, IE and Office 365 programs.

    Steps i took to resolve issue, but did not help are:

    1. In order to fix generic blank icon issue on taskbar i killed explorer.exe and restarted it but this did not resolve issue.
    2. Ran quick repair on Office 365 & restarted Windows.

    Blank shortcut icon GPU-Z

    I created an icon a while back to suggest it for replacement with a black PCB.
