i've got a problem regarding the transparency of the icon background (bg) on my desktop. as u know that a typical window xp icons in desktop have their bg transparent instead of the window 95 version where the colour of its bg is shown instead of the wallpaper.

before i have this problem, i was working on a document using WINWORD 2003 n wat i did was i copy a picture (or image) in winword program, and then i paste in straight away on my desktop. it popped out a message asking something regarding the settings. so i just clicked ok and it turned out that all the icons in my desktops are now non transparent.

i've tried changing the settings in performance settings under system properties. but it still wont work..

i hope u can help me out here.. thank you
