I've never used that app, but my first guess is those are files related to the application and not just icons. Did you install the app to your desktop or download a portable version?

I hadn't used it in quite a while, but I pulled it out of my archive and installed it, but I'm not having that problem...but then what I have is version 4.50 demo. I imagine that the current version is beyond that.
