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.

Re: Desktop icon -- transparent text boxes?

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

Microsoft Windows XP users
  • Open the Control Panel.
  • Open the Display icon.
  • Click the Desktop tab.
  • Click the Customize Desktop button.
  • Click the Web tab in the Desktop Items window.
  • If you wish to enable the Active Desktop, check My Current Home Page. Add your current home page into your desktop or click New to add another web page and/or other Active Desktop features. To update the content, click the Synchronize button.

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

Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000 users:
  • Open the Control Panel.
  • Open the Display icon.
  • Click the Web tab in the Display Properties window.
  • If you wish to enable the Active Desktop, check the checkbox for "Show Web content on my Active Desktop" and select the home page you wish to use as the active desktop.

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