Weird Icon Display..

Win 7 -64 RC 7100 classic theme.

Not related to Graphics drivers but using Nvidia 186.18

A slightly strange if minor issue, some of my desktop icons (about 50%) have a the standard size but an overall white background with a small (correct graphic) icon within it. I don't see any thing I can change - I don't customize much, so I wondered how I could get a conventional icon back?

Weird display problem
This happens regularly on my Dell Latitude D630 running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 32-bit. This is a fresh install not an upgrade. The icons return to normal by simply passing the mouse over them but the desktop stays the same until I reboot. See screen shot attached.
