Desktop icon -- transparent text boxes?
I have a Dell Inspiron E 1700 laptop running with Windows XP. Suddenly don?t know what went wrong, I found all my desktop icons background transparent. I mean background shows through the letters whereas icon labels have boxes around them, right? Might there be a driver or something that is missing that prevents the transparent labels? Please help.

You need to disable your Active desk top... believe me I tried everything else and this is the only thing that worked. :)

If you wish to disable Active Desktop, make sure all checkboxes in this window are un-checked.

If you wish to disable Active Desktop, make sure that "Show Web content on my Active Desktop" is unchecked.
