Can you describe what's over them? If not, can you provide a screenshot?

The only thing I can think of from the info given is a color depth/quality issue. I haven't played with these settings in Windows 7 yet, but I think you could just right-click the desktop and go to Properties, then click on the Settings tab (if it exists). There should be an option to change the color quality.

Yeah, if you could throw out a picture, we'd probably be able to get things narrowed down for you. If the image looks like a shield (like the One Care shield or security shield) it might mean that those programs require administrator rights to run.
