All my desktop shortcuts have funny images in the corners. They keep changing, disappearing, coming back. First it was grey Xs. Then big green check marks. Today it was speakers & then circles with a red line through them. They come & go. I am running Windows 8. Anyone ever heard of this? Can't find anything online about it. Virus scans are clear & they don't seem to be hurting anything, but dammit, it's bothering me. They usually have a green dot meaning Carbonite has backed them up if that has anything to do with it.

Thanks. As I said, it's not hurting anything & they go away on their own, so I'll leave it for now.
