Desktop Shortcut Icons are not actually Shortcut Icons

I want to clean up my desktop by deleting some shortcut icons. Each of
the icons contains the directional arrow in the lower left corner.
However, when I "right click, delete" on any Shortcut Icon, I am
prompted: *Are you sure you want to move this file to the Recycle Bin?
*I actually deleted several programs before realizing what I was
doing. The wording I was accustomed to in WinXP: *Are you sure you
want to remove this shortcut ...* isn't offered to me. I'm running
Vista Home Premium 64-bit SP1

Hi,
Vista provides the same warning for shortcuts as XP. I only get the warning
you get if I delete a file or program.
