    Do they still work when you click them? Sounds like they have broken from the programs they were pointed to. If were all of them it may be a problem with your display settings.

    Rigth click on a bad one and check the Properties then Change Icon... the path to the icon that is assigned to it is either incorrect or the icon itself (the shortcut links to) has been moved or deleted. Most Icons are stored inside a .dll file There are a load of them in the windows\system32\shell32.dll file.
