Windows 7 Ultimate x86 build 7600 (XP, 98SE, 95, 3.11, DOS 7.10 on VM) + Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx

Do you have Norton 360 installed ?
If yes, then it is the feature called "Backup Status Indicators" which clearly identifies which files have been backed up, which files are pending backup and which are excluded from backup. This feature is responsible for the Tick mark (green box) and double arrow (blue box) overlay icons.

You can disable it in Norton 360 settings. Unselect the "Backup Status Indicators" checkbox on the right in settings
