Hi again, JohnC_21!
Thank you for the prompt and instructive reply!
Thanks for the tip , as it happens; 'Active Desktop' is disabled already, as all boxes are unchecked. However I am able to change the desktop image back again.
I also managed to reenable the icon text background color by unchecking the 'Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop' box in Control Panel.
In addition in Normal Mode (not Safe Mode) I succeeded in editing the PATHEXT variable to include the .msc
And actually in conjunction with all of the above, I luckily resolved another icon issue which has bothered me for a long time, namely that several icons had a squared background color (dark blue) and some strange shadows which however did not show up in Safe Mode; and I even downloaded TweakUI thinking that rebuilding the icon cache would help, but no luck there either, until today...
Thank you very much for the help! The issues have been successfully resolved!
