Windows 7 Ultimate (SP1)

To the best of my knowledge it's a "feature" that will remain, but you could try right clicking on the desktop and choosing refresh, or clicking on an open spot in the taskbar, it's worked sometimes for me. Or you could juse re-boot the computer

Edit: Just found this: Remove the "Focus Rectangle" from Icons

Not sure if it works or not though
