White Squares On Desktop Shortcuts

Hey guys

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but it seems to most appropriate.

But about 2 months ago my desktop shortcuts would all have these white squares on them and I have no idea why. It wasn't a problem them because my desktop was empty, but now I want to use them, and well its really ugly. does anyone know how to get rid of them?

Here is an example of my problem
