Hello Dr. Drake, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if resetting the notification area icons may be able to help.

In that case, see if rebuilding the icon cache may help instead.

As a test, create a shortcut of one of the programs that has this black background on your desktop, then look at the shortcut's icon in details or list view in Windows Explorer to see if it shows the same way.

If it does, then that's just the 16x16 small icon the program developer used for it.
