For no reason that I am aware of, the text in the ident boxes which come up when the mouse arrow is put over a desktop or tool bar icon has changed. It used to be plain text and about size 10, now it is bold and about size 14.
Interestingly this is not the case with icons within the `Start` menu box which remain as the original format.
Is there a way of reversing this change or getting back to what was there before? Should say I`m running XP Pro.
Strangest thing, although I did two reboots before posting for help the problem remained. This morning when I booted everything was back to normal. The desktop icons no longer tell me their location and the toolbar icons simply tell me what they are in small, plain type.
I can think of nothing unusual I did to cause a change. I had run AVG for a regular virus and anti-spyware check and Registry Mechanic to tidy up the odds and ends. These same checks have never had this effect before.
