Internet Shortcut Icons

Hello, I'm new to windows 7. I got everything set up the way I want it except, the Internet Shortcut Icons. Lets say that I drag Google to the desktop. When I do it creates box/page thing around the icon. In xp it didnt do it, does anyone know how to fix it?

It's doing that because it's using the default icon for an Internet page. I you might be able to right click and go to properties and change the icon if you'd like.
