Old Logo on new install

Recommended Posts

I have four paid versions of malwarebytes on various computers.  I installed a new copy on a Dell windows 8 machine a few months ago.

I had to remove the MB and do a clean install of Windows. I installed MB again this morning and find that I have the old logo (red/white large M) on the desktop and task bar.  It does not make a differenence to me, just wondering why I do not have the blue bow tie logo that this installation had originally.

Cached Icon.  Eventually the new icon will be inherited but one can create and run the following batch file to rebuild the Icon Cache and force the change.
