    Erm - I'm guessing you mean the blue boxes under each icon that contain the icon text....

    If so - & you're using Xp -
    • Right click on blank part of desktop
      Select 'Properties'
      Select 'Desktop' tag
      Near the bottom on the right you'll see a 'color' box - choose an appropriate colour from that (i.e. Black)
      Click on 'Apply'
    Note that it will still be a 'box' around the text, but at least it'll match closer

    Someone did something fishy with those settings or you did something odd in during installation. [​IMG]

    It most likely happened after you went to a web page.

    I think the SP 3 update caused that.

    I don't use antiviruses because I'm badass. Seriously, it's a waste of RAM and lowers performance which is exactly the opposite of what an Anti-Virus should do. I just don't download stupid things.
