Help please! Shortcut icons problem...

I need your help. I was "playing" with icons, icon packages and so on...but after doing I don't know what I noticed that my desktop icons and other folder (mainly applications) icons changed their look. Now they have some addition - something like a small white CD disc in front of small white package. I think that this little white "package" is changed shortcut sign (before there was a black arrow in white box). I would like to restore previous look of shortcuts... but I have no idea how... I appreciate your time and help I also attached a picture of some of my desktop icons it this can help... Many thanks!!

Welcome

If it is just short cuts, try with one first, to see what happens; delete it and create a new short cut.

better yet, create a new short cut first and see what happens. Then you can delete the replaced one.
