Windows 7 Icon Problems

I received my new computer today, loaded with Windows 7 64-Bit.



Every shortcut I seem to make creates this annoying picture infront. Files and folders are ok but shortcuts to apps?

Hello Covollo, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This looks like a issue with your shortcut overlay icons. Try the tutorial below to restore the shortcut arrow to see if that can fix this for you.
