Exclamation Weird mini icons above my desktop icons - Help

Hello,

I have some mini icons showing what type of files i have .... bleh I dont really know how to explain so here's a screeny


So i've got a red X on my D drive and mini "install/uninstall-like" icon above my exe files on my desktop.

I think it happened after I install/uninstall Stardock "MyColors" ... or maybe after i disabled UAC ... I'm not sure when exactly it happened.

Can anyone help me remove those ? It might have to do with something in the registry ? help please :(

Have you tried rebuilding the icon cache?

delete C:\Users\yourusernamehere\AppData\Local\IconCache. db
reboot

(you'll have to have "show hidden files" enabled in folder options)
