That's normal. It means they're shortcuts to files and not the actual files.

sweet just they all showed up when weren't there b4? any reason why this happen?

no idea, there's an excellent way to get rid of them forever though

go here http://www.thewindowsclub.com/ultimate-windows-tweaker-v2-a-tweak-ui-for-windows-7-vista

scroll down and click the download link
extract the appropriate folder to your computer
go to that folder and
run the .exe file ( I have also right clicked on it and pinned it to start menu - so you can find it easy next time you want to use it )

under Additional Tweaks look for the section Some additional tweaks, the first box is remove shortcut arrows, click that

you then need to restart your computer

all arrows are gone

open start menu and click on Ultimate windows tweaks, and have a look through the available tweaks - some of them are very handy - but as always be careful, if you don't know what they are supposed to do don't enable them
