All the text under the icons on my desktop is highlighted in blue. What can I do to fix this? Also how can I find the speed at which my processor is running? I have a 2.8 gig processor and I would like to know how close I am to that. Thanks, Russ

Hi nighthawk2, Welcome to BC.

You might try doing a search of the forums here... I remember seeing an identical question on here about icons on the desk top several weeks ago but I don't know if they had ever gotten their problem resolved or not.

As for that processor question goes I have no idea how to check that.

Good Luck,

Wendy

Go to Start...Control Panel (Classic view)...System...Advanced tab...Performance Settings button...Visual Effects tab
Choose the Custom radio button, then scroll down the list to "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"
Put a check in that box and click "Apply" - that'll remove the shadow effect from it.
