Desktop shortcuts

I recently did a bit of housekeeping on my laptop - moving stuff around, deleting things etc etc.

After I'd finished it, I noticed that all my desktop shortcuts, while they still work and take to the application that they're meant to, have another little icon in front of them.

Its not the little curly arrow, it looks like a sheet of A4 paper, portrait orientation with with three coloured dots on it.

Whats that all about, and how can I change it?

Vista Home Premium.

Tried a few of them, none have worked unfortunately.

I seem to remember a while back that that I downloaded some little program that got rid of the little curly arrow at the bottom of the shortcut.

Could my re-organisation of the laptop have somehow deleted that app??
