have suddenly acquired coloured boxes below icons one can change the colour of them but not remove, how please.johnny
xp home sorryjohnny.
Looks like you've lost your icon transparency.I'm not using XP at the mo as I'm at work, but if you right click on your desktop and dig around in the display properties options there should be an option in there somewhere.
Control Panel/System, Advanced, Performance, check the `Use dropshadows for icon labels` box.
thanks for that i tried it but no difference if any, and the boxes are still colouredjohnny.
TweakUI click here Repair > Icons.
Try this, Right click Desktop\Properties\Appearance\Effects
Right-click on the desktop, choose "Arrange Icons by", go to "Lock Web Items on Desktop", un-check that.
cheers easy when u know.johnny.
