Windows 7: My desktop icons are mess up.......

My desktop icons are mess up.......

Any one seen this before? When I started my computer this morning this is the way the desktop looked. It seems to affect only the drive icons and windows explorer icon. I deleted all of the bad ones and made new short cuts but they keep coming back the same way. Tried various desktop pictures too.
Any ideas?
Nothing else is affected and my system runs fine. It was perfect yesterday when I shut down.
