I'm sure there is a way to change your icons to different pictures, just not sure of what program to use

as far as the little arrows in the lower left, those mean your icon is a shortcut--if you are running win9x, install TweakUI, and you can turn those off with just a couple clicks

What Mos said for shortcuts, for desktop items such as my computer, right click the desktop > properties > effects tab
