My program icons have a smaller broken type icon overlaid on each of them. Anyone run across this issue? I have tried to rebuild my icon cache and that doesn't seem to fix it.

Eh.. after futtling with it I figured out it was an old vista registry hack to remove the shortcut arrows. I had to download a new UI tweaker and disable remove arrows and then re-enable it to fix the icons. I'll leave this here in case someone else has this issue.

This combo worked for me:
Rebuild the Icon Cache in Windows 7
Change, Remove, or Restore the Windows 7 Shortcut Arrow Overlay Icon
