Hello genhartg,

This may be an association issue. If you like, download and merge the .reg files for the listed EXE and lnk (LNK) options in the tutorial below. They will restore the default associations for these file types, and hopefully fix this for you.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Sorry, but all help is done only in the forum.

What I posted above will not harm your computer. It will only restore the default associations for EXE and LNK (shortcut) files. The link in my post above will give you step by step instructions on how to do it.

If you have any questions, then please feel free to ask.

That's great news so far.

It's hard to tell since the folder background is white to see if the icon's backgrounds are transparent or not.

How do they look on your desktop instead where you will be better able to see?

You most likely will need to enable or reinstall whatever skin or tweak again that you used before that made the folder background transparent since that is not that way by default in Windows 7.

Are you using a custom third-party theme?

As Brink pointed out you need to enable the transparency again that most likely came with that custom theme you are using like Full Glass.exe or Black Glass Enhanced are two apps that create transparency.
