Strange Icons
Not to sure where to put this.

I have some shortcuts on my desktop. One day I logged on and now the shortcuts look strange. On the bottom left of each one there is a small blue box with two >> in it. I'm not sure how they got there or how to get them off. Sounds silly I'm sure, but I'd really like to remove them. If someone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thank You.

Re: Strange Icons
Ok, I did that. But what happened to put that strange little box on the icons? It wasn't on any of the other icons on my desktop (ie for outlook, word, excel etc...) only for files like word docs and spreadsheets and pictures (.jpg's).

Re: Strange Icons
Just a follow up. I went into word and all of my files has that weird little blue box with the two >> on them. I can't delete all of my files. What is this box? What does it mean? How did it get there? And, how can I remove them?

Thank you for your help.

I ran Norton 360 last night. It didn't pull anything up. I'm so confused
