Desktop icons underlined

My desktop icon names have become underlined and turn blue when the cursor moves over them. Also they only require one click to activate. How can I get them back to normal? The same thing has happened in My Computer but there the cursor moving over the icon is enough to trigger them. Quick but spooky.

...[Start], [Control panel], [Folder options]On the General tab select Double click to open an item.

Who knows? It might just work!!

Good luck!

I seem to remember that reinstalling the graphics card drivers cures it.

Thanks all. Selecting double click in Folder Options/General/Custom Settings did the trick.
