Windows 7: An Image overlapping my desktop icons

An Image overlapping my desktop icons

It looks like this:


I've tried
deleting the icon cache
cleaning my registry with CCleaner
resetting my icons to their default

And I don't know if this will help, but I've used IconPackager before but uninstalled that.

Thank you in advance.

Hello Keiynn,

It appears that your shortcut arrow overlay icon has been changed. You can use the program in OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to restore the default shortcut arrow overlay.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
