Try a System Restore back to before this happened.

Right-Click Desktop.

Arrange Icons By -->

DESELECT "Lock Web Items on Desktop"

Hope this helps.

When you say highlighted do you mean there is a background colour to the text

Left click - My Computer – Properties - Advanced – Click Setting in the Performance Section –

Visual Effect – Stroll down to “ Use drop shadows for icons labels on the desktop” – and check

there is a tick in the box
