On the desktop of a new installation (XP) I've had this before and fixed it, but can't remember how.

Grateful as always for any help.

Hi John.I can't remember excactly in XP but Right click on your Desktop then you need to change the Icon settings not to show as Web

Hi Dennis, cocteau48's link did the trick. I'd been trying the right click method, but obviously the setting wasn't there. I have printed the page for future reference. I've got 22 more of these installations to do. Hopefully one day we will be rid of XP at the office. After using Vista at home for nearly a year now I don't like it one little bit.
