Honestly, I had no idea what I was doing, I just read something similar in another post.

It's a bug in THg, but I thought it was already fixed?
Maybe it's only fixed in the beta? Not sure though...

The problem is that THg doesn't do the context menu icons correctly on
Win7, so Windows reverts back to the old format (try it yourself: make a
screenshot of the context menu without THg menus at all, then one with
those menus and compare the screenshots).
