My icon is messed up?

Please please please help! It looks like this:

I tried rebuilding the icons cache, but it didn't work. I also tried system restore, but it didn't work also.

Hello Nathan,

If these are shortcuts, then it may be the shortcut arrow overlay on the icon that is messed up instead. If so, then you could use the tutorial below to restore the shortcut arrow to hopefully fix this.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,
