I could use a little help,
All my desk top icons are for some reason highlited in bright blue..
It's not the end of my virtual world or anything, but a bit irritating.
Any help'd be appreciayed.
Hey onionizer, welcome to BC. If your desktop icons got changed but you didnt' do anything then I'd be suspicious. WinXP will adjust certain settings to changes in other settings. For example, if you changed your desktop background WinXP might change your desktop icon coloring to help you see them better (based on an internal formula for coloring).
Try resetting your wallpaper. I had this happen once when I created a new account, it used the old wallpaper for some reason and it had blue boxes around the text. When I changed my wallpaper it went away.
