Hi redsoxm, maybe I didn't explain myself well.

Example, If you go to the Google website, reduce it so you can see your desktop, drag the Google icon to your desktop, the icon appears with a white sheet behind it, I want to get rid of the white sheet not change the icon.

Ok I see what you mean but that is not what I want, I want to get rid of the sheet of folded paper but retain the blue F, am I making sense.

No worries, , thanks for all the advise, when I think about it it might be a registry hack, see if I get any more responses.

Being rid of white sheet behind desktop shortcuts

I posted this elsewhere, lots of great help but no solution, 'Ill try here.

Example, If I go to the Goggle website, reduce it so you can see your desktop, drag the Goggle icon to my desktop, the favicon appears with a white sheet behind it, I want to get rid of the white sheet but not change the favicon.

I know in XP there was a hack which would rid you of the large arrow that come with shortcuts, I am wondering if there is a hack for the above?

White boxes on desktop shortcuts
I find these white boxes on top of my desktop shortcuts. Have a look at the CCleaner shortcut in the photo, that's what I'm talking about. How can I fix this problem? P.S. Please don't suggest sfc scannows or resetting iconcaches, I've tried them both.
