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.

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.
