    I know what I have selected without the need for a stupid highlighted
    whatever around the icon.

    Yes. And it's been around at least since Windows 3.0 I imagine.

    Open the start menu, type SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe in the search box,
    then click on it in the results. Under Performance, click on the Settings
    button. Uncheck "Show translucent selection rectangle" on the Visual Effects
    tab (Apply>OK).
