Transparent icons

Hi

I recently bought a new laptop with windows 7 home edition 64 bit.

Whenever i open a folder there always seems to be see through icon in that folder. And this happens in all of my folders even my desktop. When i open an icon a second transparent icon appears in the same folder and stay there until i close whatever i opened.
Is there any way i can prevent seeing the transparent icons?

Thanks
Any help is appreciated.

It creates a transparent icon on only some folders that i open. For example when i open my word document named "Traffic school" which is located on the desktop another transparent icon of Word opens called "~$affic School"

But some of my other folders just have transparent icons such as "ntuser.dat" and "ntuser.dat.LOG1" which are in my general folder which i cannot delete

temporary files are fine that disappear when i close the application but there are other transparent icons that don't disappear. Is there any way i can not see those icons or a setting that allows me to hide those transparent icons?

Thank you so much.

Even though the problem was not that big of a deal it was still very annoying to see those transparent folders in all of my files.

Once again thank you for helping me.
