Hello Juuki, and welcome to Seven Forums.

What type (file extension) of files is affected by this?

For now, you might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

See if refreshing (F5) the desktop helps.

If not, then change the size of icons on the desktop to a different size, then back to what you had may toggle it to get rid of this outline around them.

If still not, then restart the computer.
