Windows 7: White boxes on desktop shortcuts

White boxes on desktop shortcuts

I find these white boxes on top of my desktop shortcuts. Have a look at the CCleaner shortcut in the photo, that's what I'm talking about. How can I fix this problem? P.S. Please don't suggest sfc scannows or resetting iconcaches, I've tried them both.

It actually resolved my problem. I remember having it before, but when I switched to Stardock's Objectdock on my Windows, I no longer needed the vista shortcut manager and I probably uninstalled it improperly, leaving some settings misconfigured. Thank you so much Jerry. :-)

Weird white boxes?
I'm currently using Microsoft Office 2007 on Windows 7 Ultimate, 32-Bit. I noticed that there's these weird white boxes on the top and bottom of the document page whenever I open Word, like what the picture shows. Anyone know what these are? And if I can get rid of them, how so?
