This happens sometimes, especially if you move a pinned item. The shortcut moves (what you referenced above), but the registry remains.

Launch REGEDIT, and browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband

You should see a key for it in there. Delete, and reboot.

Have fun, be safe! Sláinte!

Just look for an entry under Taskband that refers to Diablo III. There will only be one, unless you have multiple pinned icons.

Huh, you don't show an entry there. Read through this on Microsoft's TechNet forums, more detail: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproui/thread/c17f641c-4e0d-41aa-8bed-e8f049c5f414
