Desktop icon overlaid with second image

Most of my desktop icons have a second image that overlays the icon itself. Any idea how to fix this? I'm attaching a screenshot that illustrates my problem.

Hello Joey, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This is an issue with your shortcut overlay on the icon. Restoring the default shortcut arrow overlay should fix this for you.

desktop shortcut image changes then back to initial image
This happens most often to my Windows 7 Forum shortcut. This what it looks like now....... Now and then, it would change into something like a globe. A little later, it would revert back to the " normal " image. What causes that ? NO, I did not install anything when this happened...
