Little yellow/orange circles ...

On my laptop's screen, down near the "start" button in the bottom left-hand corner, is an area called the "quick launch" toolbar. There's a bunch of icons there, eighteen of them -- two rows of nine, since my task bar is double the standard height.

These are the things I use most often. I can go down there and click to launch any one of these applications.

The problem is this: Far too many of them are little yellow/orange circles. Lotus Notes, PaintShop Pro, Firefox and Yahoo! Messenger are all little yellow/orange circles, and I'm really very likely indeed to accidentally click on the wrong one.

I should go and change some of them over to their non-default icons, shouldn't I.
